Floppy drives are usually A or B. If your using Windows XP, you can possibly reassign a drive letter using Disk Management. I've never tied on a floppy before...

Hope that helps..

Anonymous,
Did you set the jumper on the drive to cable select? Check to what the jumpers on the back of the drive is set to. You should have 3 selections. primary,secondary and cable select.
Thank You,

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.

I need to know what order to put the wires from the mother Bord to the floppy drive to the cd Rom\burner to the hard drives


The floppy drive has it own data cable and does not connect to the same cable as the hard drive and CD ROM/R-W drive.
If the hard drive and CD drive are IDE devices, then the hard drive should be the connected to the connector at the end of the IDE cable and the jumper on the hard drive set to Master. The CD drive should be connected to the middle connector and its jumper set to Slave. The other end connector should be connected to the Primary IDE connector on the motherboard.

I am installing a new WD3200AAJB HD in a Dell Dimension 4550. This is the only HD in the system. There are also 2 CD drives and a floppy drive. I used the jumper settings the drive came with which pins...


Reinstall your old hard drive as master and install the new hard drive as slave.

Here is the link to jumper settings from Westrn Digital;

http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1540&p_created=#jumper

If you've got your jumper settings wrong and installed your os on the 127 GB section of the 320 GB Hard drive and you change jumper settings and then you have problems you may need to reinstall the old hard drive as master and the new hard drive as slave. Reformat the new hard drive as 320 GB, and as a bootable drive. You can either do a disk copy from old to new or reinstall your os on the 320 GB drive. Please let me know how this goes.

2nd internal hard drive



I’m assuming that you have an IDE hard disk drive ribbon cable with 2 connectors on it. One connector is for the primary or master drive. The other is for a secondary or slave drive. Return all jumper settings to cable select (CS) settings. Connect the 500 to the slave connector and power on computer and enter the set up (BIOS) menu by tapping the F2 key. Hold down the <Alt> key and depress the <E> then the <F> keys in succession. This will force the motherboard to load default settings and also force the motherboard to redetect all IDE devices. Note: The selection for the floppy drive will be reset to ON. If you do not have one then you must disable floppy in set up (BIOS) menu.

Diskette drive 0 seek failure


Does the PC have a floppy drive? If it doesn't It appears that your BIOS (Basic PC setup) thinks that there is one! I think that pressing f2 on boot will bring you into the BIOS setup.
In there, see can you locate any reference to 3.5 inch floppy and amend it to the setting which suits the config of your PC.

Please take care as to what other settings you change in the BIOS

New (used) hard drive


Just remvoe the cd rom and then try to install your hard disk. if it is detected than it means there is a problem of setting master and slave in jumper.

So just check again your jumper settings and read the front side description of hard disk for jumper settings.

Replaced teac dvd-r/cd-rw drive in Toshiba 2435-s255 running Windows XP. System does not recognize new disk drive.


if you put it on the same ide ribbon as another drive then youll need to set 1 as master and 1 as slave, theres a jumper setting on the back of your drive. on the top of your drive it should tell you were master is and were slave is, youll need to pull the little black plug out (jumper) and move it to where you want it to be, i.e master or slave

hope it helps
