Default Re: Floppy Drive Not Working

Kewl, yeah r53s, I thought this had already been mentioned and DoubleJ$ said he'd changed it and tried it, but I looked and must have been mistaken. This could very well be the problem! Good going

If that doesn't work, look at my post, and I'd advise you to get one anyway There so much better if your just transferring files, and do i need to mention how much faster?!

You should be able to buy it from a computer shop. Just say you need a ribbon cable for a floppy drive There a different size you see (slightly smaller) than IDE ribbons

You should try the new drive in another computer(you did say you had multiple computes, right?) and see if it works properly in one of them. If it does, then you can single out the drive hardware problem and know that it is infact your controller or cable.

just to be sure before i buy the new cable, is it more likely to be the ribbon cable to the floppy or something that connects the cable to the motherboard?
