    Hi I have a WD RAPTOR with a broken sata connector. The plastic "L" shaped piece just snapped off one day and I no longer have it. just the metal pins are there now. I was wondering if there is a cheep easy fix for this. Can I just glue a sata cable on or something? Of course I am going to buy an new drive if there is no fix. Just wondering if anyone here has quick fix for this? Thanks.

    if you know how to solder i gues you could take a sata cable apart and solder it to your raptor?

    then you have at permanent sata cable on it:p
