Question about Alps DF354H (DF354H168) Internal Floppy Drive

1 Answer

Read/write low density disks

I need to configure the DF354H121G to read/write low density disks for old production machine.


Please suggest the configuration that I have to use, I see that there is one jumper DS0 open and another DS1 short. Do I need to exchange their status?

Can I use a Bytecc BT-144 usb external floppy disk drive with an iMac running OS 10.10.1?


I'm not a Mac tech, but I wouldn't see why not. Floppy drives are kinda old school now. You may need a driver for the floppy. Check online and see what you can find. Download and install it.

Or you may have to plug the floppy in, then reboot, to get the Mac to recognize it, especially with a USB port. Some old Windozz machines were like that...maybe your Mac too????

Mac OS is very close to Linux/Unix systems, which have awful support for floppy drives. That's another possibility.

If your windows machine can't read the disk, makes me think the floppy drive is bad or you have corrupted files on the disk. Try a couple known good floppy disks on the Windoz box and see what happens. Or another removable floppy drive. They cost $5 to $10 now.

Hi Elia, Could be a couple of things: -Your drive may only be a 720K drive. They will format 1.44 MB disks but only with a 720K format. The test is inserting a HD disk and try formatting it as HD. -The disk could be mislabeled, HD disks have two holes on end opposite the slide, one to write protect the disk and the other to signal to 720/1.44 capable drives this is a HD disk. -The HD disk could be formatted as a 720K disk even though it is an HD disk, reformat as HD. -The new, used drive could be damaged. -The drive could be configured as a 720K by the computers BIOS. You?ll have to enter the BIOS setup find the config for the A drive and set to 1.44MB. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
