Well, NC jumpers definitely make a single switch impractical and I hadn't considered soft changes; thanks, it was just a thought, and not a very good one ;-) mike ----- Original Message ----- From: "Steve Gray" <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Tuesday, November 30, 2010 12:50 PM Subject: Re: Drive disconnect switch for SX 64 Yes, the SX64 FDD board has two jumpers for device selection. You need to CUT the connection(s) to change the device number to 9,10,or 11. Remember also, that those jumpers are read when the drive is first powered on or reset. Even changing those will not make the device invisible. You could send a command to make the device say 31 which most software would probably not support. Depends what you want to do. Lets say one didn't want to fiddle with changing jumpers or sending commands to the drive (or couldn't because you are in the middle of running a program), and wanted to connect an internal uIEC drive as device 8 while at the same time having the internal drive available. A simple switch routing the ATN line to the proper drive would be a simple solution.
