Re: Controller Diskette Error

Checked all the cabling for the floppy drive to see if it's plugged in and also for any damage. Try a different cable if all possible. There could be a problem with the floppy controller. Also clear NVRAM via SW2 and switch number 6.
Keep me posted please.

I try to upgrade the firmware, but isn't impossible, i try also to set ON SW2 pin 1-4-5-6.
It's need to change mother board.

Re: Controller Diskette Error

If you feel it's time to replace the mother board then please call into technical support. But can you please try another floppy and/or cable. Thanks.
