Atari ST – Gotek Installed

The new Gotek arrived as well as extra OLED displays. The install a went smoothly until I went to connect the power cable. It was one inch too short.

What do I do? I searched the internet for a floppy drive extension cables. They don’t make those and the ones I found, I didn’t trust. I remembered that I had a bad Amiga 2000 power supply with a long floppy drive power cable.  I dug it out and clipped off the cable.

I removed the ST motherboard from the case and removed the short cable and installed the long cable. By doing this, I gained an extra connector. Not sure what I can use it for, but it’s there if I need it.
