Hello everyone,

I'm newbie in arduino world, but I have some basics in electronics.
I'm trying to put a floppy stepper working, but I'm not sure if it works without a floppy chassis.. motor seems broken when I try to moved manually.

Does anyone already do this?

Basically I'm using an l293ne (without diodes, I think they aren't necessary with this small motor) (I can't find l293d anywhere)

with the flow schematic: (pinout of sn754410ne its the same)



- The motor seems to do something, it make noise, how can I identify motor coils? I match the IC outputs 1-4 with motor pinout 1-4.
- for motor power supply I'm using 5v of arduino, I supposed it's OK, no?

Thanks in advance

Wrong you need them.

Use a meter to identify which wires are on each coil.

No do not use pin 1, that is involved with the serial communications.

Try slowing down the speed, and swapping one coil winding. What software are you running?
