Please note the Mitsumi D509V2 Floppy drive is an internal drive and will not need an AC adapter. It should connect to the output connector of the PC power supply. These use an old 34 pin cable and you have to be careful if your PC motherboard can support this connection. Most of the present motherboards have high speed SATA interface. Also it may be hard to find drivers for Windows7 and above. So unless you have a WindowsXP PC you will not be able read it.
If there is any specific information you need please provide your question in the comments field.
Are you connect to pc or laptop? if to pc, you can try remove floppy drive ext casing and plug with ide cable to motherboard and plug to power also. If not, you need to find converter for that. it is to difficult to find this converter as long today many people already dont use it. What ever, you can find it through online.
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.
There are two cnnections required on the back of the card reader.
One is for the Floppy drive. It is flat and wide cable.
The other is a black cable with a smaller connector. This is a USB connector that needs to be plugged into your motherboard.
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.
