What do you base that on? Can't say that I've ever seen a system other than PC-compatibles that doesn't use drive 0 for the main or only drive.

Also, it looks like pin 10 (/DS0) is grounded while pin 12 (/DS1) is NC, which would seem to suggest that the drive should be set to DS0.

Alternatively, have you tried grounding pin 12?
