In this , I found pin no.19 was broken in the data connector .
This appears to be GROUND pin.
I successfully mounted the drive to my computer and I have no problem
Can somebody advise me that would a missing Ground Pin create
any problem ?

connection. However, you are now one ground pin short. I guess I would
recommend you back-up the hard drive more often then you do now in case
you do start to see noise problems.
