    Was Playing My Wii And I Use A External Hardrive To Backup My Games And All of A Sudden My Little Niece Accidentally Pull The Cables And The Hardrive Fell On The Carpet, When I Pick Up The hardrive I Notice The Usb port Is Loose, Is It Possible To Replace The usb connector? I Heard U Can Replace The entire Cassing or something Like That, Can Anyone Help? Btw My Hdd is a Seagate Brand. If u need more info on my hardrive let me know. THANKS!

    if it's the case on the hd, then yes you can buy an empty case an just use the hd. in that. it should have all the connections for you hd (new usb port, hot wire, ground). i used my older laptop hd for my wii, it's in an encloser. that i got off of amozon.
