Just a quick question, can an hard drive work with 1 of the 39 pins missing?It is a Quantum Fireball ES 3.5 series. The pin that is missing is the bottom left as you look at it from the back (opposite end to the power supply.

Elrond, its a drive i have been having trouble formatting and partitioning in a 486 pc, due to not recognising the drive over 504mb and no LBA etc. I just wanted to know before i start dismantling my new computer to fdisk it before returning it back to the 486.
