Things to do with a broken flash drive Answered

Hello there. I just broke my 16GB Strontium Pollex drive and I'm left with nothing but the circuit board (Pics below). It doesn't fit into the USB port (too small, push up=on, remove support=off) smugly, and well, this is my only 4GB+ flash drive (I have another broken 1GB one, but at least it doesn't wobble around in the port). What do I do with this to make it usable again?

You can take a cable with USB connector
from an old USB device and solder the wires to the
flash drive .

Whoops, never mind! Your solution worked! Other than the soldering thing, of course. I removed the silicone part and the flash drive fir smugly in place. Thanks!
