Try reversing the cable to the drive (pin 1 at the wrong side). At
least that's what happened to mine... Now it apparently works.
The mainboard does not have a floppy controller, so I use an SCSI
floppy drive, it is working with a floppy disk inserted.
A SCSI floppy-drive? Wow, I don't remember ever seeing one of those.
Me neither, didn't even know they existed. over USB, yes, I knew, but
never handled one.
I suppose it is correctly connected inside. The cable plug has a
protuberance impeding inserting inverted, but nevertheless, I have seen
them connected inverted: some plugs did not have the notch. And turning
continuously was typical of having the cable inverted.
I can't think of anything else, and with scssi... no, no idea.
