  1. The pin on hard drive broke am unable to put cable on it. What should I do to use it?

    If the pin actually broke you are probably screwed. The only real way to fix it would be to swap the board/pins with another drive (identical model).

    If they just bent you can unbend them enough with needle nose pliers and gently get a cable onto them.
