i have seen drives work fine with jumper settings then just stop, like a drive went bad. you wrote a whole paragraph avoiding the question so good luck with it.

I am not a computer expert, don't forget! I just assumed the disk wasn't bad since it was working fine before and still spins when I start up the machine. Is that the question you mean? *confused*
I'm kind of stuck here anywya. I can't try separate IDE's because the motherboard only has one slot and I don't have another computer to test it on, or do I know anyone here in town who does.
Its not a big deal now anyway, we had the most important files on floppy.
