97 card reader no write



#2

Hi everyone...

I've just rebuilt the card reader on my 97, and it now reads cards beautifully. Upon attemting to write (programs or data), however, I get an error message after the card runs through. It's more than likely the write protect leaf switch, and that's what I will be checking first. Is there something else I should check while I'm in there?

Thanks and best regards, Hal

Hi Hal,

Next thing I'd check is the bundle of 5 wires coming out of the read/write head. It is very easy for one of these to come loose when working on the card reader, and usually it's easy to miss since they are all bundled together.

Let us know what the problem was!
