    You have bent pins that need to be realigned.
    What do you mean the cable is not on the drive all the way? Because of the bent pins or it just won't reach?

    The cable is not all the way on the drive because of the bent pins, however the computer still reconizes that the drive is there

    It really surprises me that the drive is recognized.
    It doesn't surprise that it doesn't work correctly.

    The way I see it you have 2 options, straighten those bent pins. Be careful not to break one.
    Or you could just but another floppy drive. $5-10.

    Well I tried another drive, the computer reconized that drive, but still I cannot use floppies, its an old drive, maybe its too old, I try to straighten the bent pins on the other floppy drive
