Add floppy drive


What model Lenovo ??...

Because PC makers no longer include floppy drives in computers, many new PC users have never used one.
Nevertheless, there are many occasions when a floppy drive can be the most convenient form of file storage and transfer for small files.
On most Lenovo ThinkCentre PCs, a floppy drive is an add-on option and most packages do not include the device unless you specifically request it.
If you purchased a ThinkCentre PC without a floppy drive, you can add one to the system yourself and save some money vs. taking the system to a shop.

Shut down the ThinkCentre computer.
Disconnect the AC power cord and other peripherals.
Move the computer to a sturdy work surface.
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards

Use your fingers to push inward on the two buttons on either side of the computer.
Lift upward on the front edge of the cover to open it.
Open the cover until it stands at a 90-degree angle to the computer chassis.

Disconnect the ribbon cable from the optical drive.
Lift up on the rear edge of the drive bay tray until you can see the rear of the CD/DVD drive.
Orient the new floppy drive so that the diskette slot faces down.
Connect the floppy drive cable to the motherboard.
Slide the floppy drive part way into the floppy drive slot.
While holding the floppy drive, connect the other end of the cable to the diskette drive.
Lock the ZIF connector on the cable, then slide the drive all the way into the slot.
Slide the blue drive lock downward to secure the floppy drive in the slot tray.
Close the cover and reconnect all cables.
Power on the computer.
The ThinkCentre BIOS detects the new floppy drive automatically and configures it as the "A:\" drive on your computer.

Where is the floppy disc on my acer SA80 - Z970


I doubt you have one. Computer manufacturers have not been installing floppy disks for some years now.

Wont recognise HD, have to disconnect DVD drive and floppy drive to force it.


While it can be a faulty hard drive, please make sure you have checked the following:

  1. Update BIOS.
  2. Check if Master/Slave jumpers are set. If you have DVD and HDD (hard disk drive) on the same cable, set HDD to Master and DVD to slave.
  3. Check that the Floppy cable is correctly connected. If connected wrong, the light remains on.
  4. One or both DVD and Floppy are faulty.
When the PC starts, BIOS checks the integrity of components in a sequence, if one component is damaged it will stop and give an error. Like say the HDD comes after floppy and DVD. if the DVD is faulty, then it will hang at DVD and not proceed to HDD.

Disc slot


If you are speaking of a 3.5 floppy, you won't find one on the newer systems. 3.5 Floppys are out of date and are rarely put into new sytems. If you have data that you would like to retrieve from some old floppy disks, you will need to go to a computer store ie: Bestbuy or CompUSA and get an external USB Floppy drive. Then you can save them to your hard drive and then burn them to a CD or DVD.

Hope this helps you.

Where is the insert for the floppy disc


The floppy disk may or may not be installed in section 5. They started eliminating floppy drives some years ago, when USB flash started to become popular.

5
FlexBay drive panel
Can contain an optional floppy drive or optional Media Card Reader. For information on using the Media Card Reader, see Using a Media Card Reader (Optional).

If your question was more basic than this, and you have a floppy drive, then you just insert the floppy into the slot. It doesn't open. Look for the arrow on the floppy disk, if it doesn't go in one way, turn it over.

Issue Installing 4th Drive Device (2 DVD Drives and 2 Harddrives)


You cannot plug an IDE ribbon in the floppy slot (port). The total IDE drives you can install is four (4). But check your jumper configuration. The DVD & DVD/CD-ROM cannot have the same jumper configuration to share the same IDE slot. One has to be MASTER (MS) and the other SLAVE (SL). Or you may put both drives on CABLE SELECT (CS).
