Plastic cover over PCB connector [power connector] of my Seagate 1GB internal hard-disk is broken [connector pins are OK though]. I put broken plastic over the power pins, and jacked power cable that way. It worked for a while, then one day, after reboot, BIOS stopped seeing the disk. Disk evidently is spinning, but I suspect not all power pins have a contact. I have important data inside the disk, of about 300Gb, which I want to save and transfer. I don't think disk is broken (no damaged platters, and data-connector + its plastic cover are ok). Any help, advice would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
