The table shows jumper settings as they exist on the circuit board within the DaynaFILE case. The circuit board is the interface between a SCSI cable and a conventional PC floppy drive, whether a 2-row 40 pin or a flat connector arrangement.
Even though these are settings found on actual working drives ( Thanks to Sean and Stewart ), this is only part of the equation. Numerous experiments on my own have raised more questions since connecting a perfectly good working PC drive to a DaynaFILE using the above jumpers in place does not mean it will work. It seems there are other jumper configurations on the drives themselves in order for the drives to work in a Dayna case. Since there is little info on the technical aspects of the meaning of the jumper settings for the many available drives, (not to mention that some 1.4 MB drives have no jumpers at all), it is difficult to guess how to configure a particular drive to make it work in a Dayna case.
An example is with an original DaynaFILE 1.2 MB 5.25 floppy drive. The original drive was a TEAC model FD-55GFR. Connecting any other drive of the same type (1.2 MB-5.25) would not work. By chance I ran across an identical TEAC drive in an old 386-25 ComPac. Connecting this drive as it was produced nothing. However, since the jumper locations and lettering beside each jumper was identical, I configured this drive the same as the working one and it functioned normally. So the conclusion it that the jumers must be set properly on the drive AND the case. More research and experimentation will hopefully provide some answers.
The drivers I have at this time are version 2.8 (about 1988) and version 4.1 (about 1993 - Thanks Stewart). The v 2.8 runs reasonably well on early Macs under OS 6 but as the user manual states, a 1.2 MB drive will read and format 1.2 MB floppies only, a 360 KB drive- 360 KB floppies. The 1.4 MB-3.5 drive will work with 800KB and 1.4MB floppies but the 800KB drive will work with 800KB only (and will format a high density floppy to 800KB). The v 2.8 driver gets unstable on OS 7 and up. HOWEVER, the v 4.1 driver is more robust and works well on a PowerMac under MacOS 8 using PC Exchange. A 1.2 MB drive will read, write and format 1.2 MB AND 360 KB floppies. I will make the drivers available soon at this location. For now, if you need them, email me (link at the top of this page) and tell me what drive setup you have and even better if you know the jumper settings inside the case.
NOW, for the Users Manual, I have an original manual for version 2.8 driver. I intend to scan the entire booklet (116 pages) and turn it into a PDF and make it available here. If you want specific details before then, email me.
More info will appear here as it becomes known.
