IBM PS/2 Floppy adapter for Media Sense cables. Tested on 9590, 35sx, 40sx, 56sx, 57sx machines but should work to other models with media sense equally. Machines in the "Tested" list, come from successful feedback ;) It allows normal floppy drives to substitute faulty IBM PS/2 drives that use 34P IDC connector with Media Sense signals. Not to be used with 55sx and other edge connector floppy drives. For edge connector drives you need to buy another adapter (5 resistor pull HIGH layout).
Instructions: Plug the original twisted connector from the computer in "IBM/PS2" connector and the straight IDC 34P connector to the new generic drive (straight cable is provided in the package). Connect Berg connector to floppy power and you are good to go. Reference diskette might be needed to Auto configure the drive (and also test it ;) ). Please note: Adapter will present only a PS/2 1.44 floppy to the BIOS. New floppy drive should normally be able to read 720 but to format it, you might need /f:720 parameter. No warranty in 720 behavior though as it depends on the floppy handling the DD. Play around with jumper if you face issues with 720. No warranty is given unless DOA (unlikely :P ). Adapter is tested in live machine prior to be sent.
