disk drive interface

Hi,

I need an interface to connect a desktop PC 3.5" floppy disk drive in the USB port of my notebook so it doesn't has a floppy disk drive.

Thanks in advance,

Fernando

usb floppy interface

If this is only needed infrequently, then you can use one of the common hacks.

A: Connect the laptop to a network where one of the network PCs has a 3.5 inch floppy. In the network settings, share the floppy and then attach to this shared drive with the laptop.

B: Go to a PC with a 3.5 inch floppy and copy the floppy disks to a USB drive. Make a separate folder for each floppy disk.
