Run floppy drive off IDE

STS-Tech asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-09
We just built a computer for a client. The client relized upon picking up they had failed to mention the needed the floppy drive from the old computer, so i run it back to the shop, install the old dive, then founf there is no floppy connector on the motherboard. There is a IDE, is there anyway to plug the floppy into the IDE slot? Or some kind of converter? Or would it be best to buy a USB floppy?
