When I had it in my STFM, I just use the same power for the floppy drive it is replacing, it's a bit short so it does not reach floppy "opening" at the side.

I suppose it will sit in a box just to the right of the STe. I have never taken an STe apart so I am not sure if the ribbon cable will reach out through the floppy hole in the case. I did PM the designer from here but I think my question was dismissed as never heard from him. I didn't have any plans to mount it within the STe case.

What I am going to do is buy the cheapest smallest PC PSU I can find. Put it in a box. And put shrink around the cable.
I don't want to knacker this STe especially now as it was one I bought from Alison.

It ain't going to be very elegant is it?
