Teac diskette drive pinout for Technics kn1000


Sorry.
There was an interface included, inside the KN 1000 unit floppy disk drive. This interface change "the 34 pin out from the floppy disk)" to "the 24 pin out" that could be connect to the the KN 1000 "24 pin in" conector jack in the KN 1000 main board.

As we know, the common disk drive unit in the market have 34 pin out only. wa can't connect directly 34 pin out floppy disk drive to the 24 pin in jack connector inside the KN 100o main board.

We need such an interface. This is the problem coz no one sell this interface separately in the market.

If u have one KN 1000 floppy disk drive unit (SY-FD), u can pick out that interface from inside the unit, and use it as a gate/interface from your new floppy disk drive to the "24 pin in" connector inside KN 1000 main board.

U can search this 24 pin out diagram interface in the net, but the problem is no one sell it separately.

Hey!....I wanted upgrade my storage fro floppy 2 zip..... Would like 2 know how can I go about switching the out.....thanks in advance tucunn


Did you post this in 1996? Floppy drives use a different parallel bus than a Zip drive it's 34 pin vs. 40 pin for the zip drive, if I recall (from 15 years ago), so unless you have a motherboard with a free IDE bus you aren't going to be able to do it. Most motherboards have two 40pin IDE buses capable of driving 4 devices (two per bus), so check how many CD and hard drives are in your machine (or check the bios) to see if you have a free bus. Also, a lot of Zip drives were SCSI (which would be either 25 or 50 pin), in which case you are going to need a SCSI card.

Teac external floppy disc drive will not format floppy disc


U need an interface, if u want to use the "34 pin out" from floppy disk unit, to the "24 pin in" connector jack, inside KN 1000 main board.
U can get this interface unit bboard from "the KN 1000 floppy disk drive unit".
Just open this unit SY-FD20, and pick out that interface board from this unit,
Then use it as interface to connect your new 34 pin out floppy disk drive to connecting to the 24 pin in connector jack inside the KN 1000 mainboard.

FD-235HF-7529


This drive supports Ready signal or Disk Change signal on pin 34 (RY34 or DC34), has a large number of jumpers for various settings, thus (unlike the standard 235HF drive which works in PCs only) this drive can used to replace a 720k drive on older computers such as Amstrad CPC/PCW or Commodore AMIGA.
