but what's the pinout of the flopply drive power cable ?

(how many volts goes under each pin ?)


someone had already answered this for me a long time ago, but the seach feature of the forum didnt help, and also, google was of no good.. (maybe i typed something too vague, dunno..)

also, how many volts a regular computer LED use ? (the same as power, HDD working, and etc..)

Yellow is +12 V, red is +5 V, black is ground.

(And just in case you were curious, orange is +3.3 V, blue is -12 V, and white is -5 V.)

Depends. Probably 5 V, though.

HTH

my cable only have 4 pins.. Yellow, Black, Black, Red..

no blue, orange or white..

and what about the ampereages ? now many mA or A goes through each pin ?

No worries... they're actually on the ATX motherboard power connector. You can splice into them, if you feel brave... :^) No need to though. +5 or +12 will run anything you need.

Check your power supply. The sticker should have maximum amperages or wattages for each line. If it's watts, divide by the line volts to get the amps: 60 W on the 5 V line is 12 A, while 60 W on the 12 V line is 5 A.

The manufacturer, the specs of the LED, among others. I remember frying an LED when I was twelve, but I don't remember how many volts it took. I think it was more than 12, though. In any case, 5 volts is almost 100% safe.

to power a little lamp.. 12V, i need to use a positive and a negative 12v cable, correct ?

so i cant use my floppy power cable to power a lamp ? (not without as you previouly mentioned splice into the ATX connecter and reachin' for the -12V cable, right ?)

or a +12V and a ground will do it ?

thanks a bunch for all the other info, its really been using..

To get 12V you go between the 12V and Ground

If you went between 12V and -12V you'd get 24V and a fried bulb.

Or between Ground and -12V (using Ground as positive). It's safe, as long as you don't connect -12V to some ground by mistake.

:P
