I have the AAUI connector. I'm thinking it's working since I get a

I tried 100 different things last night and can't remember the details
now. Some items weren't on the control panel at all. Others were
there, but would complain that the application necessary to run the

It's a little rickety. When I put the disk in, it doesn't drop onto
the spindle and engage entirely. I have to put a screwdriver and push
