Hope I'm posting in the correct area. If not ... my apologies.
So I thought I'd try installing DOSBox on my MBP OSX 10.8.5 laptop to play some old DOS games that I have on floppy disks (Silent Service II & Pirates). I will need to purchase a USB external FDD. Does anyone having any suggestions on what FDD to purchase? Also ... anyone have any comments/suggestions re: installing/mounting the FDD from DOSBox? I've read where OSX 10.8 and above can corrupt floppy disks unless they are write protected (something about how Finder writes data to the floppy that corrupts the disks). I guess this wouldn't be a problem within DOSBox ... but would be within Finder only? Lastly ... I assume the these newer external 1.44 USB FDD's will read the older 720 floppy disks ... like they did back in the day? Any advice appreciated. Thank you.
