The 4-pin connection from my flash drive has become disconnected from the USB connector that goes into the computer. How I can hack together a connection without a soldering iron that will work long enough to pull off a .ppt file?

Whatever fix there might be would be specific to the particular flash drive you have. And requiring a solution without a soldering iron (or, say, conductive epoxy) is asking a bit much. – Daniel R Hicks May 25 '12 at 2:38
    
Why can't your use a soldering iron? – jmreicha May 25 '12 at 16:14
    
Not experienced enough with a soldering iron to want to risk it – AnthonyW Jun 1 '12 at 15:16
