What do you mean with "reversed the wires" ? I'm curious, because I have a connectivity Kit here but I haven't used it yet. So if theres a way to brick your drive by using it the wrong way I'd like to know. I already almost bricked my HDD because it is the xeno connectivity Kit and theres no booklet, sketch, instructions on how to connect it correctly, and there are two possibilities. One of them is obviously not healthy for your hdd, you can smell it
But for some reason it still works like a charm. Now I don't want this to happen with my DVD-Drive, so please tell me what you did wrong.
