Not really, Dont know how you managed to push the ide pin in, It should have been getting a little hard

There is supposedly one way, but I haven't tried it and WOULDN'T recommend it, You can get an old hard drive and replace the pins, but like i said i have only heard of it and havent tried it

Intel Pentium 4 2.00Ghz FSB 400Mhz
MSI MS-6533 Motherboard
1 - Seagate 20Gb 1 - 40 gig Maxtor AND 1 Western Digital - 80 gig (Variety there eh)
Geforce 5200 128mb AGP
Liteon Dvd Burner
340watt PSU
