Question about Citizen 1.44MB 3.5-Inch Floppy Disk Drive (Beige) (LR1043) Floppy Drive

1 Answer

3.5" Floppy drives where you can select the drive letter i.e. B

On our older machine tools we used to fit a 3.5" Floppy drive where you can select the drive letter i.e. B instead of A by either a jumper / Soldered link etc. We have fitted Citizen LR102061 drives in the past and keep getting asked for replacements, can you offer an alternative drive and price and delivery please.

    Cheers for the quick response, do all floppy drives have links / jumpers to change the drive letter ?

    no, usually biut not all, but if you look at the ribbon cable, some have a twist across some of the leads, this changes the drive letter, if you have a twist in your cable and have another without the twist, try them one at a time, and you should find the correct one for the drive letter you want.

Here is some info on fixing a corrupted UEFI Partition:
Firstly, boot from a Windows 8 recovery drive (CD/DVD/USB). If you don't have a recovery drive (and this is likely because most new machines don't come with one), then you will either have to install the drive into another Windows 8 machine or obtain a Windows 8 recovery drive, or boot from the recovery partition of the boot drive (If this option works at this point). Don't even bother with the automated recovery process, it will not work as it cannot find a Windows partition.
  1. You will need to choose the language and time settings.
  2. Choose 'Repair Your Computer'.
  3. Choose 'Troubleshooting'.
  4. Choose "Advanced Options'.
  5. Next choose 'Command Prompt'.
Next, we're going to use the DISKPART tool to verify that the UEFI partition has a drive letter assignment.
Enter 'DISKPART' (Enter)
(In this test case we removed all other drives except the boot HDD and DVD, so we know the disk 0 is our boot HDD)
DISKPART> sel disk 0
Disk 0 is now the selected disk.
DISKPART> list vol
diskpartinfo.png
There was no drive letter assignment to our UEFI partition (volume 3) so we need to assign a drive letter.
DISKPART> sel vol 3
Volume 3 is the selected volume.
1). If you know that you have a extra drive letter available use it here, otherwise skip to 2.
DISKPART> assign letter=E:
2). If you are unsure what the drive chain is or if you don't know what drive letters are avalable use:
DISKPART> assign
If all went well, DiskPart successfully assigned the drive letter or mount point. You can verify that a drive letter was assigned by "DISKPART> list vol" again.
Exit DiskPart tool (Enter EXIT)
Next, we need to change to the boot folder on the UEFI volume.
Change to the UEFI volume into the boot folder. Use drive E: here or whatever drive letter was assigned above.
cd /d E:\Boot\
Now we will need to enter three command lines to repair the BCD store.
For MBR drives: (Drives < 1TB)
  1. bootrec /fixboot
  2. bootrec /fixmbr
  3. bootrec /rebuildmbr
For GPT drives: (Drives > 1TB)
  1. bootrec /fixboot
  2. bootrec /rebuildbcd
That's it, if all went well the BCD store should be repaired, and the system will once again boot.

Bat bios checksum problems solve


Step 1:
Update ASUS BIOS b> Insert bootable floppy disk or USB drive. Copy the updated BIOS file to floppy disk or USB drive.
(Note: BIOS file and boot files should fit on a floppy disk. If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.) Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. Copy AFUDOS.EXE from CD to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the DOS prompt appears, type the following: afudos /i[name of BIOS file]For example, "p4c800b.rom" might be the name of the new BIOS file. "afudos
/ip4c800b.rom" is the command that will install it. Wait. Your monitor will display the update's progress with a series of messages: "Reading file," then "Erasing flash," then "Writing flash." The "writing flash" message will be followed with a percentage counter that tells you how far the write has proceeded. The final message will be
"Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard. After the update is complete, the utility will return to the DOS prompt. Remove your floppy disk and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Save and reboot. You're finished. b> Update Using EZ Flash Copy your new BIOS files to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the system is at POST, press "Alt" + "F2" to enter EZ-Flash. Alternatively, on late model motherboards you may press "Delete" to enter BIOS setup, then access EZ-Flash from the "Tools" option on the navigation bar. (Select Tools > ASUS EZ Flash 2 > YES) Wait for your system to check current BIOS information. Insert your floppy or USB with the new BIOS file. Select the drive letter with the BIOS update file, then select the file. Wait for your system to check the update file. After the file check is finished, click "Yes" to update your BIOS. Wait. Let the update procedure run until it finishes. Do not switch off or reboot or you will ruin your motherboard. When the update is finished, remove the floppy or USB drive and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Reboot. You're finished. b> Update Through the Internet If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility. You can either download it or use the copy on your motherboard's support CD. Close all Windows applications if any are running. Launch the ASUS Update utility from the Windows desktop by clicking "Start>Programs>ASUS>ASUSUpdate>ASUSUpdate." The "ASUS Update" main window will then appear. Select "Update BIOS" from the "Internet option" drop-down menu. Click "Next." Select the ASUS FTP site nearest you, or choose "Auto Select." Click "Next." From the FTP site, select the BIOS version that you wish to download. Click "Next." Start the update. Wait for it to complete.

Floppy drive is not shown in computer what is the reason behind it


hi.................................



Floppy Drive Does Not Show Up In My Computer

In case when your floppy drive does not show up in your "My Computer" whereas all other drives are showing up than you must first check if your drive is working fine?
Click on Start > Run and in the Run windows type compmgmt.msc, click on Device Manager and in the right pane right click on Floppy Disk Controllers and select properties. Check if the device is working fine. If it isn't than you need to contact your hardware vendor else if it is working fine than read on the problem seems to be in your BIOS.
Before proceeding make sure you know how to play with your BIOS. If you cannot better get help from experienced hands.
Check the CMOS settings and see if the floppy drive is visible. Ensure that the CMOS is set to "Halt on all errors" and also check that the BIOS' "Report the floppy drive to OS" setting is enabled.
Another reason could be drive letter conflicts caused by software such as RAMdisk.
Another reason might be the TweakUI power toy available at microsoft for FREE download. (check the right column for the download link.) The tool can cause drive letters to be hidden in Windows Explorer and My Computer. If you have it installed, go to the Control Panel and double-click on TweakUI. In the My Computer tab, select the checkboxes of the drives shown as hidden. Click Close and restart.

The Disk Management snap-in is an administrative tool for managing hard disks and the volumes or partitions that they contain. Use the Disk Management snap-in when you want to add, to change, or to remove drive letters on drives, on partitions, or on volumes on your computer's hard disks, CD-ROM drives, and other removable media devices.

Your computer can use up to 26 drive letters, from A through Z. Use drive letters C through Z for hard disk drives. Drive letters A and B are reserved for floppy disk drives. However, if your computer does not have a floppy disk drive, you can assign these letters to removable drives.

Before you modify drive-letter assignments, note the following items:
  • Changing the drive letter of the system volume or the boot volume is not a built-in feature of the Disk Management snap-in.
  • Many MS-DOS-based and Microsoft Windows-based programs refer to specific drive letters for environmental or other variables. If you modify the drive letter, these programs may not function correctly.
How to assign a drive letterTo assign a drive letter to a drive, a partition, or a volume, follow these steps:
  1. Log on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
  2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance.

    Note If you do not see Performance and Maintenance, go to step 3. Performance and Maintenance appears in Control Panel only if you use Category view. If you use Classic view, Performance and Maintenance does not appear.
  3. Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then clickDisk Management in the left pane.
  4. Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Click Assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, and then either accept the default drive letter or click the drive letter that you want to use.
  7. Click OK.
The drive letter is assigned to the drive, to the partition, or to the volume that you specified, and then that drive letter appears in the appropriate drive, partition, or volume in the Disk Management tool. Thanks or using FixYa! John

In invista what is the purpose of the d drive and the e drive


Each drive on your machine is assigned a letter.
Floppy drives if you have them are A: and B:
The System drive is typically C: but does not have to be
If you have a CD drive it will be assigned a letter as well say D:
If you have a USB flash disc attached it too will have been assigned a letter such as E:

However, you hard drive may have been partitioned that is split into smaller sizes. So although you have one drive you may have more than 1 letter assigned to it.

If you are on windows click on the Start button, Righ click on My Computer or Computer (depends on your version of Windows) and select manage
Select Disk Management
(wait until the page changes)
It will tell you what each letter represents

True for Vista and later - Can't remember if it works on XP - I think it does

SimpleTech 320 GB hard drive not recognized by PC


Windows likes to play with drive letter assignments, especially when you remove a device without using the "safely remove hardware" icon. When you plug it back in, Windows may think that you've plugged in a new one and assign it a new drive letter. Try this:

Your computer can use up to 26 drive letters, from A through Z. Use drive letters C through Z for hard disk drives. Drive letters A and B are reserved for floppy disk drives. However, if your computer does not have a floppy disk drive, you can assign these letters to removable drives.
