  1. Red will put 5v in the 12v, which won't really do anything, but putting the yellow 12v in a 5v slot will fry the chips.

    The HDD Failed is permanent.
  2. How did you manage that? The connector only fits one way.

    Take a look at the control board, its probably scorched and the electronics toast.You can normally replace the control board though if you can find one. I've taken one off a drive from Ebay and swapped with no Data loss
