My friend has asked me to take a look at his had drive for him. I know enough about computers to understand that it is quite possible that the connection on my friends hard drive is probably broken. I've never had to replace the connection on a hard drive before so even though I doubt it can be done, I just wanted to know for sure. Plus I have only ever mainly worked with Sata but this hard drive is a Samsung M2 Portable 3 1tb usb 3.0 device. He has a lot of memories on his HDD so if I can somehow with the knowledge of someone here change the connection (just worth a shot I think) then that will be awesome! Sorry by the way for the fact that this is not Apple hardware, I just didn't know where else to turn for help. Many thanks in advance.
