Question about Epson 1.44MB 3.5 Floppy Drive Floppy Drive
I have an old hp computer with bad smd349 1.44mb floppy drive, i found a new smd349 floppy drive but i can read on it just 720kb disks!( on the floppy label there is a label 1.44mb ) do's anybody have the floppy data to set it to 1.44mb ? thanks
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.
