|I didn't find any hits for 39044--only for the 93044 so are you really sure? What about the cylinders/heads/sectors? We can figure out it's capacity from those figures. Here's an old thread I contributed to for a 93044 and it was type 17:|
You can damage a drive by setting its drive type with too many cylinders and probably heads too.
There should be a few other drive types around 40 meg but they're going to depend on how your particular bios defines them. Each type should show the capacity also. That should prevent you from setting it too far off.
The drive types are typically for MFM drives and you've got an IDE but those old IDE's had drive translations made for MFM types.
