    BIOS does not recognize the FDD. Have tried 4 different drives and different cables, no go. Could the mainboard be the culprit?

    Any words of wisdom?

    Appreciate your help.

    This one takes the cake. Was waiting for it to auto-detect!!! Christmas is also coming.

    The old brain is fried, been looking at this thing too long.

    Provided your cable is red stripe to
    Pin#1 (both ends), it's gotta be the
    motherboard.

    Could it be a dip switch ? Or perhaps
    a short on the Board ?

    My best guess.
