    I have had a Mitsumi Internal Floppy Drive for like a year now and still to this day cant configure It to my dell computer, I didnt want one from dell because i wanted a multi card reader which dell didnt do, my floppy drive Is USB, I also have a usb cable from the unit and dont know where to plug It Into, there is nothing on my motherboard, maybe I need a convertor from male to female or visa versa, why put the thing on when it goes no-where, I`m pretty good with stuff like this but I am useless with this, I need to get It working, you have the power that goes In, everyone knows where that goes cos theres a spare wire thats always In computers to hook up something else, the ribbon goes to the motherboard, so now where does the usb connection goes, confused, I am and have been for the past year, I did hook It up without the USB but the green light stayed on, If I do need a male to female connector, whats It called and where does It go, any Ideas would be very grateful...

Does the product come with A/C adapter, drive-to-PC connector cable(s) and driver disk?

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.

Yes. There is a floppy drive connector on the motherboard that is in your HP Pavillion M9517c, which means you can indeed install a floppy drive if you wish.

I need to know the voltage of Mutsumi D359M3D floppy and where?

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.

Mitsumi 7 in 1 card reader

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.

These USB connections are usually near the bottom right of the motherboard where you connect the power switch and LED lights. They usually have 9 pins. See this link and loko at the third picture so see what i'm talking about.

If you don't have a USB connector on the motherboard.. you'll need to purchase an extension card or an adapter that will plug into a usb outlet on the front of back of your computer.

Best wishes...

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.
