Pins bent


I’ve got a WD external hard drive, however it’s stopped working and the pins where it connects into the WD to the PC seems to be bent, I don’t know how it happend, is there any way of getting the stuff off the WD?


A photo may help.

Otherwise, if you are talking about the USB connection, then you can remove the drive from the enclosure and install it in a third party enclosure. Be aware that doing so will void your warranty.

Some drives have the USB logic as part of the drive itself, in which case you will need to find some way of repairing or replacing the actual connector.
