    Musical Floppy Drives

    I put it all together, and I know my drives are functional, but the heads aren't doing anything when I hit play. The only change I made to the wiring was omitting the light, but I doubt that's the problem. Please help.

    I got the pins right, but the light pins are actually the drive select pins, so without them connected to anything (in my case just the bundle of ground wires) the drives won't work. They do now.

    Ah. Yeah, I can see how you would want that, I just didn't want open wire connections. Speaking of stacking, though, the .zip for the bracket doean't contain an .stl. Can you reupload it or send me a link to an external source? Thanks!

    It's pretty late, but I had this error too. If you're on Windows (the only way I know how to fix this) open Start and type in "regedit" Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft and make a new folder called "Prefs" and you're done.
