Question about BYTECC (BT144) External Floppy Drive
Seven pin connection and I don't know where to hook it up. It is a BT-146 model with a floppy drive and media reader. There is an EIDE connection that I hooked up but does it also need to be powered with a seperate cable or does the one that's attached install somewhere to give it power?
The 7 pin connector is for the media card readers and needs to be plugged into a USB header on your motherboard. Not all motherboards have this header, so consult your motherboard manual. You may have to connect it in place of front USB connectors on your PC case.
The card reader will work without a separate power connection. The power connection is for the floppy drive only, and IS required for the drive to work. You should be able to find the appropriate connector on your power supply.
