Looking from the back of the connector (from where the wires are inserted) it reads from left to right as 12V yellow, then both blacks, then 5V red. Do not know if the blacks are isolated grounds. The wires tend to fall out so never pull wiring.

The power cable connector to the drive has 1 red (5v DC), 1 yellow (12v DC) and 2 black (common center or negative) wires feeding the required voltages from the main power supply source. The power connector will only go on one way. I hope this helps.

Hi,

The below is on the basis that the drive is visible in "Computer"...


This can be tow thing, one the drive is not receiving enough power from your USB port, try unplugging any addtional USB devices connected to the PC, if this doesn't work try a powered USB hub. Second the floppy disk is faulty or the drive itself is faulty.

Hope this helps, let me know how it goes.

Thanks

Mac won't recognize usb drive


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especialy true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.

Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
For MAC users I am sorry but apart from the above steps that is all I can offer.

Flobby ALWAYS says it needs to be formatted


This problem usually indicates you have failing hardware, (floppy drive, interface, or cable). It will need to be replaced or serviced by a knowledgeable technician.

Troubleshoot the problem:
Check the cable connections and carefully re-seat each plug at the drive, and at the motherboard. Otherwise, try a simple swap-out of the floppy drive itself if you have another one available. Make sure the system is turned off and has no power applied before touching anything inside the computer.

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


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.

Floppy drive (d63119)


is the green light on all the time, if it is the ide cable is probably plugged in wrong, if not when your windows startes up press rather F2/delete or F12 (different for different motherboards) your looking for ''enter setup'' look in there to see if floppy has been picked up and if its enabled. might just be a dead floppy drive.

Driver for an external compaq floppy drive


Am not familiar with the model but Compaq would be your best source...support and downloads....if not, and you will need to poke around.....there is an absolutely phenomenal free driver site in Russia that has (personal opinion) virtually every driver ever made in every version. All free. You can also try the add/remove hardware auto detect and point it to Microsoft...you might get lucky. The only other solution is to query the internet with your model number and the words driver behind it. Hope this helps....Tango.
