    Perhaps this is why multiple HDDs never show up in bios and I can't get into windows! Now I just need to know two things to get on it:

    1. Since it looks to be permanently attached to the mobo and looks like PCB under the power and data sides...what do I do to run SATA slot 1 from the mobo to my HDD?

    2. How can i post photos? Best I've come up with is using my avatar...

    Thanks!

    Hi Dan,

    When you write or edit a post, there should be an "Upload File" button, which is the preferred way to post a picture. If you don't see that, you may not have enough post count yet. In that case, sharing a picture from Google drive and posting the link should work.

    I'm afraid I don't have much help to offer re the crack. We usually refer to Samsungparts.com to find spare parts. Once you have a part number from them, you can Google it for price comparisons.

    I did see your post about being unable to extract BIOS. I hope to get time to check that this weekend. If Samsung changed how they deliver BIOS updates, that could be bad news indeed.

    Edit: Oh, and I deleted the posts your marked in the other thread. I was actually ok with you posting there, but I appreciate the courtesy you showed to the OP.

    You're probably right about the post count...I will keep looking for it. ETA: found it!

    I might just install the hdd in a caddy in the optical drive and change boot order in bios (assuming any of these steps don't result in catastrophic failure). I'm hoping to shed light on why that might be a terrible idea so I can begin formulating a plan B.

    Thank you and i look forward to hopefully hearing from you soon!

    This looks like the part, although I don't believe I have the capability of connecting to the mobo myself...

    Sorry to revive an old(ish) post...

    Is there a conductive glue I can try on the plastic..I feel like the crack allows the data side to separate just enough for the contacts to not completely touch.

    Any other suggestions? Should I go for a caddy/adapter and replace the optical drive?

    Thanks again for all your help and advice!

    Best,
    Dan
