A short post to share the issue I had with a low cost IDE to USB 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! I tried to fix it but seems that the controler also goes wrong. No time to lose on this PCB!

Always have a look on the hardware…

See you
