Ok, this is my converter (I need one because the drives I use are 80 pin condensed and my controller is 68-pin).

Ok, down on the second view where it shows the backside of the converter, you see the four metal mountain type things. Well, the problem is that the converter fits into the hard drive perfectly, but with even the slightest movement like making my tower vetical from its horizontal position causes the thing to touch the hard drive which causes a tiny spark and a short circuit. Then my computer shuts off. Apparently, I wouldn't want to use SCSI for my new build if there is danger of a short circuit. Is there anyway to fix this? Can I put some non-conductive material as a spacer between the converter and hdd? If yes then what kind of material? Are there any other options that would solve this problem?

would normal non-conductive black tape work?

Edit: Removed link. I could see some people not liking that website. Google it yourself, dont do so if you're under 18. /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />
