Before You Start
The Mitsubishi MF357G is a bootable, high capacity LS-120 flexible disk. It is able to
read ultra high density, 120 MB SuperDisk diskettes and is backward compatible
with 1.44 MB, 1.2 MB and 720 KB 3.5 inch flexible diskettes.
A special IDE controller or upgraded system BIOS may be required in order to make
your LS-120 bootable. Please consult with your computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer to see if your hardware is capable of supporting the LS-120 drive
as a bootable device.
Precautions
1. Please handle the LS-120 drive carefully. Avoid exposure to ESD (Electrostatic
Discharge) which may damage the drive.
2. Do not drop the drive or expose it to moisture.
3. Do not remove any cover from the LS-120 drive, particularly while the drive is in
operation. Invisible laser is present while the drive is operating which may cause
permanent damage to your eyes.
4. Do not use any type of cleaning diskette in the LS-120 drive unless it carries the
LS-120 logo and has documentation explicitly stating that it functions with the LS120.
5. Do not ship or move the LS-120 drive with a diskette installed. The diskette
mechanism locks in place when a diskette is ejected to ensure that the drive will
sustain no damage during shipping or movement. The mechanism remains
unlocked when a diskette is loaded.
6. Take care not to bend or break any pins of the drive’s connectors when inserting
or removing cables.
Cleaning the LS-120 Drive
Only use head cleaning disks that are designed for LS-120 SuperDisk drives. The
use of cleaning kits designed for 1.44 MB floppy disk drives can damage the LS-120,
voiding warranty.
A suitable head cleaning kit, manufactured by Imation, is now available for LS-120
disk drives. It should be used when read and write errors regularly occur. Please
follow the instructions included with the kit when using it.

Installation Procedure
Determining Drive Connection and Jumper Settings
1.
Turn off the computer, disconnect the power cable and remove the cover.
2.
Check your hardware configuration to find the appropriate LS-120 jumper
setting.
Check the motherboard and IDE cables to see if there is an IDE connector
available, then find the correct jumper setting for the LS-120. Be careful to avoid
any conflicts with your existing hardware.
Most motherboards that support Pentium or higher processors include two onboard IDE controllers: the “Primary” and the “Secondary”. Each IDE controller
can support up to two devices: one “Master” device and one “Slave” device.
Note that the hard disk drive (HDD) that is used to boot the system (drive C:)
will always be the Primary controller’s Master device.
The LS-120 may be configured as either a Master or a Slave device by setting a
jumper. Refer to the following connection diagram and the table for the jumper
location and settings.

Connection Examples:
a)
If you have two IDE controllers, find an unused connector. The main IDE
hard disk drive (drive C:) will usually be the Primary Master. CD-ROM
drives are often set as the Master device for the Secondary IDE controller.
If this is the case, select the Slave setting on the LS-120 (by setting the
jumper to "SL") and connect the LS-120 to either IDE controller.
b)
If you have two IDE controllers, but only the Primary is used (for example
with the hard disk as Master and CD-ROM as Slave), select the Master
setting on LS-120 (set the jumper to "MA") and connect it to the secondary
IDE controller.
c)
If you have only one IDE controller, with one unused IDE connector, set the
LS-120 as the Slave device, connected to the same cable as the hard disk
drive.

Drive Installation
1.
IDE Interface
Connect the IDE cable between the drive signal interface and IDE controller. Make
sure that the each of connectors is properly inserted and secure. The interface cable
has a coloured marking to indicate Pin 1. Check that this coloured marking
corresponds to Pin 1 of the drive’s IDE connector and Pin 1 of the IDE controller.
2.
Power Interface
Connect the Power cable to the 4-PIN Power connector on the drive, making sure
that the connector is inserted with red coloured lead at the right-hand (outer) side of
the connector when the drive is viewed from the rear.
The LS-120 has a 3.5" floppy disk drive (FDD) type connector for its power interface.
Use an adaptor if the larger HDD type power connector is the only type available.
3.
Securing the drive
Secure the drive into the bay by recommended screws.
Drive Model
Recommended Screws
MF357G-xxxUx
#6-32x1/4", Depth = 4 mm (imperial)
MF357G-xxxMx
ISO M3, Depth = 4 mm (metric)
Caution: Do not use screws of excessive length. They may cause
damage to the circuit board of the drive.
Verification of the Installation
Before you put the cover of the computer back:
Verify that the power and data connections are secure and have the correct
orientation, the jumper setting is correct and that screws are tightly fastened.
Check cabling to avoid any possible damage that may be caused if the cable is
trapped between the PC’s chassis and cover.
