In Reply to: new round cables posted by ran

you will only bend a pin in the mobo and HDD connector, causing the cables to not seat properly. That little hole is basically the stupid method of two polarization tricks (i.e. only plug the cable in one way -- the other trick is that notch on one side of the plastic plug).

The blocked-off hole in the plug probably has a small plastic cap inserted into it. Take a very fine, sharp object -- a dress pin might work -- and carefully prise the edge of that cap until you work it out.
