I made this probe to do liteon drives but the clips are a pain in the ass sometimes. Got them at Radioshack and they are cheaply made. I was thinking of an alternative this morning and I wanted to know.

Since the Red clip takes 12V from the DVD drive and the Black clip is a ground, could I wire it directly into a DVD cable or even take the molex cover off and wire it directly into my PC? I have years of wiring and soldering experience but was just curious if anyone has done this.
