Making modern computer see and work with 5¼" floppy drive
Posted on 2002-06-26
I have a large collection of classic adventure games that were published using 5¼" floppy diskettes. The computer I had that supported these disks has finally died of old age. I have two other computers but neither one has the 5¼" drive. One is a PIII, 450mhz, Win98 and the other one is PIII, 1000mhz, WinXP. Is there some way I can use a 5¼" drive with either of them? I have heard that there is a problem in getting the OS to recognize the drive.
If there is, how would I do that?
If there is, where would I get an external 5¼" drive?
