I just bought an OEM floppy drive. It has no documentation on which pin is number 1. it is also not keyed so it would only connect one way.Any other way of checking??

Thanks

Daniel

Generally, red stripe on floppy cable closest to power connector.

BTW, putting it on backwards, the drive light will not go out.......it doesn't hurt anything, it just won't work that way ;)
