I am thinking about getting this click here to replace my 3.5” floppy drive as I currently have an external card reader and don’t use floppy disks anymore.
I have an eMachine 3220 that has 2 USB ports at the front and a bank of USB ports at the rear [via a card connection] and have recently fitted a Asus P4S800-MX SE m/board click here
Can you experts please [a] check whether I have a spare USB ‘connector’ on my M/board – or will I have to lose the front USBs and [b] do I have to alter the BIOS so that the hard drive is no longer looked for/found – or will the fact that this is disconnected mean that this is auto-removed [I don’t want the bios to hang!].
Thanks – this is new to me ;o) I’ve only ever added hard drives and RAM before! Hope I’ve given you enough info.
