My drive no longer works but has plenty of data on it I would like to keep.What I was doing while this happend was putting in a new power supply. The power supply and driver were working fine until I did something very silly. The problem was my new power supply only had one SATA connect where my old one had four. I originally had the SATA plugged into my Drive and it was all working fine. Then realized my DVD drive did not work so I needed two. I did notice the power supply had another plugin that would fit on the drive. That plug is FDD (Which I now know stands for Floppy Disk Drive) I was testing to see if the FDD would power my Drive while I used the SATA to power my DVD drive(it did not). The FDD was still plugged into the Drive at the same time I replugged the SATA cable into the Drive…causing smoke. Foul smelling smoke.
I believe I ruined the driver by plugging in the SATA while the computer and power supply was on. Instantly the driver started smoking…I’m pretty sure the drive is done for but I was just wondering if there was a way for me to get it repaired or save my data. Thank you.
