    It is an M2551A Fujitsu 5.25 Floppy Drive

    Also I just formatted the C: drive hoping clearing the software would help the drives be read but now I dont even have the HELP option this drivin me nuts

    Swap out the floppy disk card with a generic 16-bit multi o/i card with fdd support and see what happens. Don't worry about the overhanging part as thats for ide only.

    Please describe what jumpers are set on your M2551A. That is a fairly standard drive used in clone PCs.

    Try testing the system with only one drive at a time plugged in.

    I'm not quite sure what that OP/ST jumper on the 720k drive is supposed to be.
