Yeah...course it matters about 1 pin... otherwise the sockets would only be 1 pin sockets...

Okay then, do this to your drive if your not worried...

Take out all but one pin... does it work then? I bet it wouldn't!

Well there you go then, they must all carry seperate things to make it work!!! and so, 1 pin would make it not work of course if the wrong pin broke off! So don't call me stupid...
