Can I find a 5.25 floppy drive at a computer store and attach it to my Dell? I just need to get info off these old discs. Suggestions, please?You want to put a floppy on the IDE (or SCSI) chain, or you simply want a 5.25" bracket that you can put the 3.5" drive into? The latter should be possible to find in almost any computer store, and only cost $5 or less.
My latest trip to the4 computer stores say No, no competetion. I haven't seen any kind of fdd controller card. Closest thing was a USB drive.Perhaps there would be a small market for PCI/PCIe based floppy controllers, now that more and more motherboard manufacturers leave out those from the chipset. In particular if those 3rd party controllers would support a multitude of disk formats. I recognize the CatWeasel Mk III/IV PCI exists, but does it have any competitor what so ever?
