I recently bought a 2.5" internal HHD for my desktop computer. During the install I broke the plastic part off the SATA connecter port leaving only the bare pins. For an illustration see below (not the actual HHD):
The plastic from that sata connect was then stuck in the SATA cable that had originally broken the plastic piece off. I was able to plug the cable back in and secure temporally with electrical tape. The hard drive works fine no issues with the setup I have. However I would like a more permanent solution.
What are people thoughts on hot gluing the sata cable to the hard drive effective making the cable a fixture of the hard drive and not removable? Glue doesn't conduct so I don't think it would have adverse effects and the glue comes out of the gun at roughly 193C which is much hotter than even the max temps of my cpu of around 37c.So it would seem that it would be a vaible option.
Will this work? More effective solutions?
