Seagate Portable Hard drive

My Portable Hard Drive is a 1tb Seagate and the usb connector has broken, there is nothing wrong with the hard drive its self, its just the usb connector inside the case, is there a way this can be repaired??

The USB connector is connected by 4 wires, so if t can be accessed it is a simple job to put a new extention (same as printer end- (Mine is)).

Don't try to fix the new extention to the case, as it probably will not fit- leave it loose

So if you know someone who is handy with a soldering iron, and you can acces the connections easily, it is a simple job, however like all things there is no guarrantee.
