Floppy Disk to USB Drive

Dear Computer Lady,

I Have a camera that uses 3 1/2 inch Disks and I would like to know were I could get a 3 1/2 inch disk drive USB port to use on my computer to down look at or down load Pictures.

This is still a very good camera.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank-You Bill.

Dear Bill,

I have a USB external floppy disk drive that I use occasionally, and it works great!

I use it to view and/or retrieve files on the occasional floppy disk that I find, and I sometimes have customers who need the files off of their 3 1/2″ disks and no longer had a drive on their computer to access them with.

While these drives are hard to find in the store, they are almost always available at Amazon at a decent price.

Just follow this link to check them out.
