conductivity to reduce noise. If it is a problem, maybe it can be bent slightly (remove it first) OR get a Falcon approved floppy
drive OR bend the floppy drive.

So yours may be newer motherboard than mine
Guess, that explains why you don't have that piece of metal thingy there.
Mmmm.... May be it can do without it.....

Ok, but you also mounted the FDD somewhere else right if it's a tower?
Problem is my FDD will still be at the original place.
I wonder if Hippy Dave is right and it needs it for electrical conduction / grounding.
