Please help :(

Help , I destroyed a pin on my DVD
Hello there ,

I am owner of a DVD-RW NEC 1300A (Atapi) device.
By accident yesterday when I was trying to attach the ide cable on the device I destroyed one pin from the device (controller I/O bus) .
It is the pin No #2 . I saw that this pin is -ground-
(There are total 40 pins)

I add the device to pc and everything seems to work perfect .
It is reading and writing with no errors .

Is there a problem to use the device with pin#2 of the controller missing ? Will be any problem with writing/safety of the device in the future ?
