Well, that's the end of that!
Tried to pull the plastic shroud from one of the connectors on my module and pulled the connector right out of the PCB
Since the kind installer thought it would be a good idea to epoxy the module to the system board, I can't remove it to repair the connector without the risk of damaging the system board which I'm not prepared to do.
So goodbye 1.44MB floppies! The dream was nice while it lasted (I know there are other options but read on).
I'm hoping to be in line for one of the next batch of CosmosEx units where upon, I will turn the floppy drive into an external unit.
Anyway, thanks for all the advice and help with this
