Hi,

My Lacie hard drive recently broke and the warranty will not cover the repairs. So I decided to investigate why the firewire was not working. I decided to open up the hard drive and discovered that the firewire connector that you plug your firewire cables into which connects to the inside of the hard disk is broken. I removed it to see if it could be mended, but it can't does anyone know where I can buy one of these, as I think it is just a case of attaching a new one of these to the chip inside the hard disk.

Thanks

From looking at the original, that didn't appear to be soldered on. It looks like there are to plastic clips underneath that had some kind of adhesive on them.
