Hello 5899, if you open the left hand panel on your PC box, check the cables and they will have a stripe on one side to indicate pin1. On all the drives except for the floppy drive they will be facing towards you ( the floppy pin1 stripe will be facing away from you).

On the board where you IDE connections are there should be something like a very small triangle or a small number 1, all you have to do is line them up with the pin! stripe on the IDE cable.

P.S. the floppy should only fit in the right connector because of the number of pins.
