3.5" PC drives
#40
When you run the SuperCard Pro it will tell you if there is no board present.  If you see that message then it would be a driver installation issue.  If you don't see that message, then the problem is communication between the SuperCard Pro and the drive.

I program and test every board before they are shipped, so I am confident that the board is working.  The first thing the board does is a power-on self test.  The pretty lights would be all rapidly flashing if there was any type of problem with the board.   I test the power cable (I make those), but I don't test the floppy cable because that is something that I purchase brand new (I would think they are ok, and I have not had any bad ones so far).  Do you know that the floppy drive you have actually works?  Have you tested it with a PC?  A drive will not make any noise or light up (unless it has a LED, and only a few models do) when there is power.  So, you can't tell much about the drive connection just from looking or listening to the drive when it gets power.
