    Stuck SATA Cable

    Plugged my SATA into my shuttle, pulled it out cos I needed to shift it, and the bottom half stayed in the shuttle mainboard, with the pins showing on the cable end. Can't get the bottom bit out, it seems like its welded onto the board! Have to get a new cable, even tried prying out with pliers with no joy.

    They shouldn't go in that tightly should they? Can't see a catch to undo it. strange. Hope i dont damage the onbaord SATA.

    He pulled out TRANSISTORS?

    I hope thats a misprint because I dont think your mobo is going to work very well if you start pulling transistors out of it

    So you are using the same SATA connector again with a different cable ??
    I would recommend testing the integrity of some new files you write to the drive; as SATA drives may not have problems with bent pins, but welding the connectors togethor and then ripping them apart has to be a recipe for data corruption

    That strange, probably a dimensional wormhole, I stuck loads of superglue on my serial ATA lead as I had cracked the Molex by sticking it upside down, it could be a Trans positron effect through space-time. Inside ATX is dark places, they could be little creature living in the air, fumigation necessary
