Question about Sony (MPF920-Z/131) Internal Floppy Drive
Just resurrected old AT chassis with Sony MPF920-1 floppy drive in it and installed a new Gigabyte motherboard, quad core cpu, etc.
Used cable that came with motherboard--with the twist in it.
Installed XP Pro SP2. System says the drive is working, but the light stays on and I cannot read or write a floppy. I even found another drive which I substituted with the same result.
I notice that there is a jumper on the drive. Anybody know what that jumper is for? And, does anybody have a fix for my problem?

It sounds like the floppy cable is hooked up backwards by the floppy drive. Take cable off at the floppy drive and turn it around and reconnect it. Let me know what happens.
