How to use jumper settings on FD1158C

The FD1158C dual floppy drive has the problem that both drives are not recognized. One or the other but not both. The jumper settings are suspect, what are they and how are they used?

The "normal" jumper settings will be sufficient, unless you connect more than one drive to the "data" ribbon-cable.

I am installing an EPSON SD_600 5.25 inch flopy drive into a gateway computer. Which if any jumpers do I need to change into order to have this drive share a data ribbon cable with the existing 3.5 inch...

Unless floppy drive cables have changed in the past few years, they're designed for 2 floppy drives, with the jumpers on both set the same way. There's a small twist in the cable that changes the drive addresses instead.

Or you could just replace the existing drive with the new one.

How do I add two floppy drives, A and B? There are no jumpers to set.

If you're using an IDE cable and a fairly modern motherboard, just plug one IDE into the first drive, the second IDE into the second drive, and then plug in the IDE cable to the motherboard, and it should automatically configure the drives regardless of jumpers.
