First question, is the 1394A and 1394 the same port/cable\?
hard hard do I have to push in to get these cables to stay in place? I had trouble with the HD audio and USB front panel cables, and the 1394, it wont stay in place, and I'm pushing it in (not overly too hard though, but enough force)
They're not very hard to push all the way in, but since they don't lock, they also aren't difficult to pull out.
You match the postives with postive and negative with negative right?
This is important for the LEDs only. If they don't work one way, simply reverse them.
