Question about Acer Computers & Internet
I'm trying to add a floppy driver to my Acer system. The data cable wont fit the pin configuration on the drive controller interface. Pin 3 on the controller is missing, but on the cable it's pin 5.
I though all data cables were standard. Do I have to buy a different cable?
I think the cable is the other way around. The end which has a twisted portion and with or without pin 3 covered goes to the FDD while the other end with or without pin 5 covered goes to the motherboard. Pls refer to the image below.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
