Well I have a cdrw and 60gig hdd both are missing a pin and I also have 40gig hdd with a pin bent.
Are the ones with missing pins hopeless? And Could I just bend the bent pin back into place?

you can buy 'male' pins at a radio shack or something of the sort..you can bend back the bent one but just be careful.
