My floppy went kaput about a year ago, so I put in a new floppy. I connect the IDE and the power, and procede to power up the machine...<SNIFF, SNIFF> What's that smell?? Holy cow, there's smoke!! And before I know it, I've burned the power cable going into the floppy! Well, after an autopsy of the cable, I noticed that I plugged it in with the left connector not connected to anything. So connecting 3 of the 4 connectors will short out the connection, hence the need for more idiot proofing the floppy...You should have seen my boss' reaction, he thought the building was on fire!

What happened to the power supply?
i just burned my power cable to floppy too... -_-
damn, i shouldn't have done it when i am sleepy....
my power supply survived, but i'll get a new one anyway, just for safety sake.
