Step 7 – Install the Flat-Cable to the Motherboard
Locate on the motherboard the floppy disk drive connector. It is a 34-pin flat-cable connector and usually has the words “Floppy” or “FDD” near it, see Figure 26. Obs: for better picture quality we took the pictures on this and in the next page with the motherboard outside the computer.
Once again you must match the pin 1 marking on the flat-cable with the pin 1 marking on the motherboard connector, as shown in Figure 27.
After you correctly aligned the flat-cable connector with the motherboard connector, just push the flat-cable connector with your thumbs until it reaches the end of the motherboard connector, as shown in Figure 28.
If your floppy disk drive doesn’t have an embedded car reader like ours, you’re almost done. Just put the side panels back in place and screw them back to the case. Now enter the motherboard setup and make sure that the floppy disk drive is enabled as explained on step 9. After that you are ready to use your new floppy disk drive.
