    Default Epson SD-521 Jumper Settings

    Looks like by venerable old Mitsumi 360k drive finally kicked the bucket, throwing loads of errors any time I try to read or write to it. My replacement drive is an Epson SD-521, one of those pushbutton drives. I know it works fine, but it came out of a Kaypro and it's going in a dos machine so I need to know what the jumpers should be set to to make it work.Can't find anything about it on google, does anyone have a manual or something?

    I hope you cleaned the heads before deciding it was junk.

    Cleaned the heads, greased the rails, this drive was on its last legs when I got it. It did not lead an easy life

    Aha! I finally got it! the jumpers towards the back of the machine are a drive select. I had to set it as drive 1 to be my B drive. I couldn't see the labels except 1 and 0, they're worn off but after some trial and error it works well!
