I will do so.

Yep, one of the drives was set to DS2, so I moved it back to DS1 so I
could test as a primary drive. I agree the drives would be different
from 5.25" ones, but I connected them to the same PSU that runs my
TM848E successfully. It seems strange that a working PSU that drives a
TM848E would not supply enough or the right voltage for a TM848-02.
