Default FDD Data Cable

Anybody can explain me about floppy drive data cable before twist and after twist concept?
If u explain with pictures it will be easily understandable.

I don't have a picture but I'll try to explain it as clearly as possible :

There should be 3 connectors on the cable, normally 2 of these connectors will be close together, the twist will be in between these 2.

The end connector which has no twist before it, connects to the mobo. Assuming you are connecting up only one floppy drive, then the drive will attach to the connector at the opposite end (ie after the twist). The middle connector should not be attached to anything.
