5"1/4 floppy disk drive in modern computer

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Francois PIETTE, Dec 13, 2010.

  1. Hi !

    I would like to connect a 5"1/4 disk drive to a modern computer. I tryed to
    find an IDE interface for 5"1/4 disk drive but failed. Anyone having a
    solution ? Please don't tell me to use an old computer and use RS232 to
    transfer data, I really have the need to connect the 5"1/4 flopy disk drive
    to my current computer.

    Thanks for your help,
