Yes, I removed the 5V connector :D - no desire to fry anything! Using my straight through cable I could calibrate, but the motor wouldn't run. Swapped it for one with a twist and away it went. I didn't investigate much further simply as I didn't have time. It's feasible it's a duff cable but I've been using it happily with other things :?

I didn't know about the 5v cable until I read into dumping +3 disks with an FD-1, luckily I read that before I got the drive! Strange your cable doesn't work, my cable was a straight through one supplied with my Kryoflux as I bought the version with PSU and cables.
