Specs: Windows XP
my cpu tipped over and the usb connection broke off of my sandisk 16gb flashdrive. Is there any relatively inexpensive way to get the information off of the flashdrive?

Hi Gcf,

would think it possible to connect by soldering another usb plug to the flashdrive, with a cable between. Short USB extension cables are available in the cheapo stores for around £1.

There are not many connections on a usb plug/socket.

Here in the UK, there are many electronics (not just pc) repair shops.They are used to soldering small connections, using a powerful magnifier.

Please advise back on progress.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
