Any reason why you're wanting to keep the Floppy still around? I don't remember the last time I used one (maybe 10 years ago at this stage). With the cost of USB Drives, I have TONS of these sitting around that hold a heck of a lot more than a floppy ever could.
Any reason why you're wanting to hang on to that technology?
Mister connor detective yes hon,I have stuff on floppies I forgot to transfer and I need to get a hold out of that stuff you know,is not a romantic thing but what I dont see here is nobody tell me how to ask for the floppy device that has usb connection if there is one,well on the shop.
Yipes! I just threw out all the floppies I've accumulated over the years because I can't remember the last time I used one. I was thinking I need to throw out all those floppy drives too that are in my parts inventory. I'm assuming you're asking about 3 1/2" floppies which you can buy with a USB external connection.

I still use one on my Yamaha PSR 350 keyboard for MIDI files. I have converted over to USB for the midi connections on it, but I am too lazy to tear the keyboard apart and hardwire in a USB so I can get rid of the floppy drive.

The last time I had to use a 3.5" floppy drive was when I had to force a BIOS update on to a server. It was one of the most nerve racking hours of my life trying to make sure I didn't effectively brick the server.
Granted it was an older server, 7-10 years old if I remember.
