Well I study real hard & figure out the right way to put all my new system together. Assembled it all & in the process I bumped the SATA ll cable off the HD also having a dual fan HD cooler & knowning they dont stay on good I thought nothing about it. Well I went to plug the keyed data plug in & the plastic lip & key was missing off of the new HD totally. I never even found it yet. I tried super glueing the data plug to the HD & to the SATA power plug it stayed put still failed. If I find the plastic I might try that. Next plan strip the cable & solder to the connectors, if solder will not stick then I will solder direct to HD board yuck. I knew the plugs did not lock in place only being this cheap is not acceptable.
