A short post to share the issue I had with a low cost USB to IDE adapter. First it works fine and after a while, access to the disk goes wrong. I opened the external disk and I found this:

IDE to USB Hardware failure

A nice ceramic cap unsolded! Just re-solder all the component and let’s go again!

Always have a look on the hardware…

See you
