Here is my experience with a Samsumg SFD-321B drive. It's quite modern
another crapy and blurry photo from my unfinished web, if you surf into it,
it's only in spanish, sorry)
It has no jumpers, just a pair of tin bridges you have to desolder and
solder simulating the jumpers. Also I found some drives which have not
changed the board in years but old ones have jumpers and in the modern
version you just desolder and resolder in the same place (If a floppy drive
works fine, why change it's design in 10 years?? ;) )
I think most modern drives got in some place the RDY option, other thing is
it's hidden or just no RDY text on the board which helps a lot. Each drive
model must be analised for finding the correct place. Also some drive
manufacturers have PDF's in ther website with the specifications and some
have the jumper location. May help to find where in the recent revision
those jumpers where removed and/or replaced with soldering.
4 different drives I have "converted" to RDY and all had any way to do this
(Well, as I said, two of them were the same but one with jumpers and the
other one with soldering...)
I wish this info did help :)
