Help with broken IDE connector on DVD Drive



Hi to all, I got a big problem when I was changing my IDE cable, the connector has been stuck on my DVDRW drive and I don’t know how to remove it from the drive because I may break the pins of the IDE connection of the drive, do you have any idea how to remove the connector from the drive without damaging the pins? Many Thanks!


I suggest to carefully (and with a lot of patience) to use this tool (sorry I’m not able to translate correctly the name) :o.

The connector should be removed with no problems :slight_smile:

Alternatively, you can use a couple of flat edge screwdrivers, one on each end to gently push out the connector.


Thank you geno888. I tried using two flat screwdrivers and carefully removed the connector. :bow:


You’re welcome :slight_smile:


Hey Geno, that tool you can’t translate are called pliers.:bigsmile:
