My ixpand broke, the connector for my iphone is broken. When i put it in my bag while the drive is still stack in my phone it brokes. I put the usb on a laptop and the files are still there. But i cant open the said files.maybe bcoz of the broken connector? Is it posible to fix it or is it even posible to copy files? But how? Its not opening either on comp. Or laptop 😭

since it is detected by the computer can you copy and paste the data off of it? If so see if the files will open once copied to the computer. If the files will not transfer they may have been damaged when the connector broke. This can happen if you were transferring files when the connector broke. If that is the case you would need to seek a company that provides data recovery services.

Tnx for the reply. I finally found a laptop that i can open the files. I can copy aNd i can also save on said usb. But its so sad that i can't use it anymore on my iphone ☹️ Is there anyways or shop that i can bring my ixpand to fix it? Or it isnt possible?

it is unlikely you can find someone that would fix it. maybe some place could resolder the connector on but they may cause more issues if not done correctly and would probably break again easily. best really to just buy another one.

Hi there, My iXpand is broken, it broke into 2 pieces. One is the connector for iPhone and another one is body + usb port.
I’m too much worried about the data in my iXpand which has a hundred of files and photos. So I am curious that is it possible that all my data is still in ixpand and I can transfer data from broken ixpand to my macbook? Is anyone have been experienced with this problem, please let me know. thank you.

No, I didn’t plug in the laptop yet cuz I didn’t bring my laptop with me. Too much anxiety and wanna know the possibility to get the data and photos back 😭. Thank you tho & I will follow your advice.

for whom it may concern;
but what turned out:
In the ixpand flash drive 3.0, there is a micro SD card hidden in the black plastic of the USB plug. I am not sure if you can get the micro SD card out without removing the metal shell. (maybe through the small holes on the side)
So the conclusion is: Do not use, the ixpand flash drive 3.0. the motherboard is way too thin, and the device too expensive. IOS on Fat32?
