While attempting to remove my hard drive from my old core console, I lifted it out by one side and BENT the prong (I guess it's a prong? It's the little thing that sticks out at the bottom of the hard drive) that connects the hard drive to the console itself. It's now loose and with enough pulling would probably come out. The xbox resets whenever I remove and put the hard drive back in, but it doesn't detect any memory.
Now I'm assuming the broken prong is what's making the xbox not able to read the memory in the hard drive. I've seen tutorials on youtube that have shown people removing something within the hard drive shell (Which I'm assuming is the actual memory unit) and put it into another shell. As this break the microsoft seal, I know it breaks warranty.
SO getting to my initial questions...
1) Where should I take this to see if it's broken?
2) Is this a "known to happen" problem and is it repairable?
Thanks in advance.
