How do I add a second floppy drive ?

Hello and thank you for your question,

I'm not sure why you would want or need a second floppy drive, but here is your answer You will need to check and see if your current floppy drive ribbon cable has an open slot You will also need to check to see if your power supply has an open 3pin connector that will support another floppy drive You will also need to make sure you have another floppy bay available If so, then consult your system documentation on how to physically install the drive usually it just slides in an open bay and is held by four small screws.

Good luck!
