    what are the jumper settings for a TEAC Combofloppy ("TEAC FD-505 dual
    floppy disk drive", only one floppy-connector for both floppies) to
    _completely_ disable the 3,5" drive, whose head is damaged, but to keep
    the functioning 5,25" drive together with a replacement drive of 3,5".
    I have already read 5fd0010a.pdf from the TEAC website (especially
    pages 1 and 21f) but can't figure out the jumper settings for this.

    Based on the following two posts, I'd try taking both
    jumpers off, leaving them off of the left-hand column.


    However, since a normal floppy cable determines drive role
    by the twist in it, you may have to jockey the positions of
    the two drives (the half-disabled drive being one, and the
    separate new drive being drive two) on the cable, or jumper
    the right-hand column for slave if the cable position
    requires it, but still not jumpering the left-hand column at
    all (if the posts linked and my interpretation of them is

    I'll try it.
    No problem as the mainboards BIOS has a switch for doing that like in
    the cable.
