making the round hole is I think the only way to do it since the LED on that drive was the actual thing lighting the bezel, unlike today's floppy drives where LED pipes are used.

i have a question about your case bezzel lights... do all power lights, and hard drive busy lights have the same amount of voltage? i was gonna replace my green one with a blue 5v like the ones you were using, but the green one i'd be replacing was much smaller, and i wasn't sure if i could still plug it in and have it be bright enough???

I do believe they are all under the same voltage, however...I'd get a dmm and check, just to make sure...

and if the led's in your bezel are 3mm, and your led's that you bought are 5mm, then you can either mod out your bezel (increase size of hole...) or buy smaller led's...

http://www.eled.com has a bunch of diff sized led's at a good price..

I have the Logitech Cordless Freedom Pro mouse and keyboard set and i've been thinking about adding some blue led's to the inside of the mouse (no sense in letting that nice translucent casing go to waste ;) ).  But i've been wondering if the added LED's would have any negative effect on the optical sensors in the mouse. If anyone's done something like this before, let me know how it turned out (even though i'll probably just do it anyways).

the only thing they might screw up would be the power...however led's and optical mice generally are low-power usage devices, with the exception of the logitech ifeel mouse..which drains 500mA!!!

and infact, if positioned correctly, you could theoretically enhance your optical's sensors cuz it can read better cuz of the addition light! :D

Try changing your mouse LED, and if you feel any depleted performance, put back the old one.  It's just as easy as replacing it.  just remember the correct polarity.

Just to give a little support, I have changed my optical mouse LED to blue and I haven't seen any negative difference.

Gid,
    Why didn't you use the 3mm led in your speakers. Why go through the trouble to sand it down to make it fit.

Just wondering.

Oh they make the square leds in blu for your floppy.

All n all u did a good job. Connections could have been better. Not to happy with the floppy drive.
