Anyone managed to repair these? I've seen three with broken off USB surface mount sockets but not seen how to fix them. Just couldn't solder the pins back to the board. Tried soldering wires to the solder pads but they were just too close for me to solder to.

Decided rooting out the drive and getting another enclosure was the only answer.

Enclosures are cheap enough to not worry about repairing broken ones.

One thing to watch out for - some USB drives have the USB connector on the drive itself (there's no sata socket).
