Has your old IBM PS/2 ‘planar’ floppy drive stopped functioning? Or would you like to add a second floppy drive, or better yet, a Gotek or HxC floppy emulator? If so, then we have the solution for you! This adapter will allow you to connect a standard 3.5″ floppy drive to your PS/2. Some PS/2 systems use a standard floppy cable, so please make sure your model uses the edge-connector or ‘planar’-style connector as pictured. You only need a working drive, and this adapter to get up and running. No jumpers are required, the drive is auto-selected by the physical slot on the system.
Please note you will need a reference disk for your system to add or remove floppy drives. There currently isn’t a solution for properly mounting a replacement drive, and it will likely not line-up with the original floppy case cut-out. However, if the plate is removed from the front of the case, the drive is accessible.
