View Full Version : Compaq floppy drive?

02-18-04, 11:11 AM
Just got an old Compaq Presario 450 PII, 440BX chipset from work. I pulled out the old mobo and swapped in my old Iwill KK266 and 1.4 Pally but somethings up with the floppy drive. The pin arrangement is different or something because the floppy cable won't plug into the mobo. One pin is blocked out.

Is this some kind of proprietary crap? Is there a workaround or do I just need to grab a new floppy.

i took my old compaq floppy drive and put in my new pc, i used the cables that came with the mobo. Could be your cables?
