The drive was modded based on this: http://www.atari-wiki.com/index.php/...D_Floppy_Drive

I found this post elsewhere in the forum:

Some drives have jumpers for these changes, but most later day floppy drives don't. They do, however often have jumper pads on the circuit board that can be used to reconfigure the drive

I modified this drive (a TriGem, made by Samsung) by removing a zero ohm resister connecting the DC signal to pin 34, and soldered in a jumper wire to connect the DC circuit to pin 2 of the floppy interface connector. I then removed a solder bridge that jumpered the drive to be drive 1, and bridged the adjacent connection to address the drive as 0...
Since I'm using a custom cable, do I need to make the DC signal modification?
