Hi,
It might just as easy to get another controller. For around $5.00 plus a few dollars for shipping. Contact me if you go this route.

Well I have some drives that are 20 pin. Most are the Disk Drive ][ some maybe a half height. Contact me email for more details if intersted.

Hope you did not damage the input on the your Acer when you tried to adapt the drive to it.

Hi, Usually the drives wit

Hi,
Usually the drives with the DB 19 IIgs only needs it head cleaned and maybe a speed adjustment. No taking the wires on or off with the power on.

Can you test the DB-19 drive on a IIgs? To see if it fuctions.

I am not sure even if the DB-19 worked with the old 20 pin controler that it would work perfectly on the Acer. MC PriceBreaker sold an adapter cable with there controller card. But that is using Apple card.

Will send you a P.M.
