The micro usb (soldered) is broken on my WD Elements SE 1TB external hard drive. So I can't plug in my cable.
My product serial, WDBABV0010BBK-00.
My SATA serial, WD10TMVV.
I manage to find an image online that is a similar model. Here is a close look of the micro usb. http://i1194.photobucket.com/albums/aa36...
I have identified the micro usb to be a micro-b. However I am not so sure what is that black color, 2 holes thingy underneath that micro usb port? That electronic part is not something that is available on the market. I guess it is WD proprietary.
So my question is can I buy a micro usb online and replace it?
If I am going to do the desoldering/sol
