also, what about a brushless cd rom motor?
I just tried hooking up an old two-wire brushed dc motor I found lying around my studio. It runs when connected to 3v and ground, but not to one of the output pins set to HIGH and ground. I tested the pin with an LED, so that's not the problem. Any idea what's going on here?
Brushless motors require a special feedback circuit.
SOrta hoping you found a good solution. I've got a handful of hard disk drive motors, 3 wire, that I'd like to just turn on and off, no speed control necessary.
