Posted this on Reddit but it seems to be a head scratcher, so was wondering if anyone could help me troubleshoot.
Purchased a IIGS system with both 3.5" and 5.25" drives. Seller tested and showed both drives as working.
The issue I'm having is that I cannot get the 3.5" drive to be recognized if anything is daisy chained to the back of it. Tested with the physical 5.25" drive he sent, no go. Tested with a FloppyEmu in 5.25" mode in the back, no go. Tried to go into the IIGS Control Panel and change the boot slot to slot 5, immediately get check startup device error (and, yes, I made sure slot 5 was set to SmartPort). Interrupted a regular boot and did a PR#5, same problem; basically, when I daisy chain, the 3.5" drive stops being seen as a connected device.
The 3.5" boots perfectly fine if it's the only device connected to the IIGS's port. Same for the 5.25" drive and the FlopypEmu, boots fine if they are the only device connected. The only setup that isn't working is when I daisy chain anything to the back of that 3.5" drive.
Anyone seen this before, or better, know what else I can do to try to resolve? I only have the one 3.5" drive, so I can't try another to see if something happened during shipping that affected that daisy chain port, but it was very well wrapped, it seems unlikely.
Thanks for any help.
