Okay, there are a lot of these on eBay now:
Has anyone bought one? How is it? Does it work with 1.44MB and 720K disks? How about 5.25" drives?
I assume that powering the drive through USB is less than ideal, so I would be okay using a different method of powering it, but I want to be sure these work at all first.
I've seen several discussions about these adapters but hardly anyone has given any input on how well they work and what they're capable of.
My Lacie USB floppy can read and write both 720 and 1.44 disks but it has become very unreliable very quickly. It is starting to cost me a lot of time while working with older systems. I'm about ready to just cram a couple of adapters into my main system so I can actually have real drives built right in.
Now for some blitting from the back buffer.
