My flashdrive is literally broken in half in 2 pieces. I've read on here that you can solder the connections back together or even place the memory into an identical flash drive in order to recover all the files. I do not trust myself attempting to do any of this so does anyone know what business or companies would actually do this for? I was thinking of trying best buy but I doubt they would actually solder something. I live in Philadelphia so not a small town or anything. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. Thanks.
Only problem is I need to get the files off of the flash drive first. That's the only reason I need it fixed. I (very stupidly and have learned my lesson) don't have a back up of the files anywhere. I need them pulled off of the broken flash drive.
Usually the printed circuit boards traces are broken off. I tried to resolder them, I could not get it to work. The traces were broken and it was close t impossible to bridge the gaps with solder. A flash drive should be backed up. I would try to get an one piece flash drive next time.
Go to an experience electrician. You can find them at small computer shops or TV repair shops. You may also see their ads in one of the free publications or something. They may not be tech savy enough to post an ad on craigs list, but they can solder back together just about anything.
