So the connection on this hdd has always been loose but recent ly i went to unplug the usb cord from the drive and managed to rip out the entire connection. The files on it werent incredibly important but being a musician i had several recorded songs on it that would be a pain the re-record. So would there be any use for a drive with no connection on it? Can it be repaired?

ISTM that the USB connection is on a detachable bridge board. Just connect the drive to a SATA port and you should have access to your data.
