Newbie with new build here:
Plan to run 2 drives on this system, MOBO is a Gigabyte GAM-59SLI-S5.
Floppy is a Mitsumi FA404M , DVD is a HP dvd940i.
Someone gave me this floppy drive, it is brand new, but without any tech. info. Mitsumi site, for some reason does not offer support on how to interface this unit.
It has 4 connectors; IDE, power, USB 2.0 and an unidentified 4 pin male connector just above the IDE slot.
My questions are:
Which connectors do I hookup for the floppy? I already know that I need to connect the IDE and power cables, what does the USB do in this case? Will it negate any other connectors? What is the 4 pin connector for? I remember reading somewhere, not sure where, to setup the bios 1st. then hookup the floppy...anyone concur?
DVD writer has a setting for cable select, master, and slave, this will be the primary drive. Should I set it to cable select or master? I am wondering if the MOBO bios has a cable select feature and will recognize as the DVD as primary. I have not gotten far enough in the build to even run the bios yet....lol.
Any info much appreciated
