How do I connect an Internal Zip Drive to a pc with a floppy

Hi everyone,

I have bought 2 zip drives and I was wondering if i have to buy a special floppy ide cable so i can attack them or do i just simply replace the floppy drive and use its existing ide cable?

You need to check the jumper config and make sure they are set correctly and yes you use IDE cable so you hook it inline with either your HD or CDROM

you can use your existing IDE cable, no special one is needed.

The zip drives would have to be connected to the same IDE cable that is connected to your hard drive or the CDROM drive. It will not work on the Floppy Drive cable.

Also, you can only have 4 devices hooked up to IDE, unless your motherboard has more IDE ports or you have another controller card.
