Hello,
     I have a customer who purchased a Dell Dimension 3000 PC and it does not support a 5.25" Floppy Drive in the BIOS.  Does anyone know of another solution whether an add-on Floppy Controller or possibly an IDE or USB 5.25 Floppy is available?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ellis

I'm looking for a solution for a 5.25" Media, not a 3.5" Floppy Drive.

This will definately solve my issue, I even found a local dealer who should have the latest version by the end of this month.

Thanks!
