Can you fix a bent/broken USB thumb drive


My USB stick broke from me bending it. It's a Toshiba TransMemory ID USB 3.0 Flash Drive 32GB – Red, which is a FAT32.

When I opened it up and looked at the PCB, one of the 5 connectors on the PCB that connect to the USB head (the part you plug in) completely broke off. Besides that the PCB is stable and has no damage.

Can this be fixed?

Here's a picture of the part that broke:

Best Answer

Might try adding a dot of solder. Plug it in direct and try to copy off files. If it works, maybe you can fix or create new case.
