It was Pin 9 and 20. I'd highly suggest that you do this to a drive cable instead - that way you can always resolder the cut wires together and not even lose the cable.

You'll want to use a razor blade or Xacto knife to separate the individual wires from each other at first, being careful not to cut into the metal itself. You'll want to use an Ohm Meter or other tester to ensure that you've cut the right wires and no others.

I haven't tried this myself, so I don't know whether it will work or not. It was on my list of stuff to do before adding to LisaFAQ, but hasn't been tried. Let us know if it works. The subject indicates a 1.44M superdrive, but perhaps it should be an 800K drive.
