I have an old PC with a 5.25 1.2MB floppy drive that is running DOS/Win98. I also have some 360KB floppy drives pulled from an old Kaypro 1 that I would like to put into this machine, but I'm not sure what additional hardware/software is required to support this, if it's even possible.
If the motherboard already supports a 1.2MB floppy drive, is it safe to assume I can just swap this out for an older 360KB drive? Does this depend on the motherboard (the embedded floppy drive controller)? Are the connections the same on both a 1.2MB drive and a 360KB drive? Thanks in advance for your help, below are the specs of this machine if that helps:
