Question about BYTECC (BT144) External Floppy Drive

1 Answer

There is a white cable fixed to the drive that appears to have

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?

Thanks, Tawn

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.

Where to cables to hard drive go?


Usually the white connectors are from the power supply for additional plug-ins. If the Hard Drive has two cables hooked into it and you can trace one to the power supply and one to the motherboard then it is connected. If everything is connected, try a different connector from the Power Supply. If that doesn't work it could be the connecting cable from the HD to the mother board, or it could be the HD has failed.

Hook up to dvd player


There are more than two methods of hooking up the DVD player.
1) Get a 5pin component cable with Red, Green & Blue pins. Connect the DVD Player's RGB out pins to the TV's RGB in socket. This will take care of the picture. Then for sound you will need the secondbobhifi_4.jpg set of Red & White cable. Connect the Red & White pins to the DVD players audio out socket (Red for right channel and White for Left channel ). The other end of the cable you can connect to the Red & White socket next to the RGB socket where you have connected the Video. Play a DVD and scroll through the inputs slowly. You will see the picture appear on one of your selections.

Consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Plug each pin in same color to get color picture.

Installation of BT-146


Yes, you need to plug in a 4 pin FLoppy Molex connector. Your power supply should have at least one. The power connector is right next to the Floppy Drive connector.

Also, the Floppy connector goes in with pin 1 (The red stripe) to the left looking at the unit from the back (furthest away from power).

There is no manual to speak of.
