    Hi @ll.

    Today i got a super pro fighter.
    Tested it and seems to work. But when i tried to backup to floppy it says no disk.
    Floppy makes no noise, no lights.
    I opened it and saw power abd data cables are missing.
    I soldered 2 wires abd installed a data cable. Floppy no reacts but still saying no disk. I also tried different floppy drives. Nothing.
    It seems it is no original drive.

    I used a power supply, too. 10v 1.2A negative is centre.

    What can i do?

    I read something about a gotek/grotek floppy drive emu.
    But will try a real floppy drive first.

    Thank you

    Older DD/HD disk drives have some jumper on the pcb to set some settings. Like first disk drive (df0). Newer disk drives don't have those jumpers.

    Floppy drives didn't use jumpers like older HDDs. The ribbon cable should have a twist in it with one connector after the twist for the second drive, it was purely determined by cable position. The end the twist shouldn't be hooked up, the drive should go to the middle connector, and the end with no twist goes to the system. If that's how you've got it wired up, it could be anything from a too weak power supply to a dead floppy.

    You might look into a floppy hardware emulator. They're not terribly pricey and I know some other vintage copiers have worked with them, so it's worth a shot IMO.
