    Default who still has a 1.44 MB diskdrive on their Mac?

    Hi,

    I need some help from someone who still has a 3.5" diskdrive on their Macintosh machine? I have this software on a 3.5" disk that I need to use for my digital back, but my Mac doesn't have a drive for it (I use the powerbook G3 Lombard).......or can someone tell me if I can connect any 3.5" drive through its USB?

    Thanks!

    Thanks! However, due to the writing format differences, PC's can't read Mac formatted disks.....the otherway works though.......but what I need is from Mac to Mac. Will try to get a used diskdrive here.......

    Hi Szekiat,

    So, when I attach a 1.44 3.5" diskdrive to the USB it works? Need any drivers to run it? Or will OS 9.2 recognize it right away?

    OS9.2 should support 99% of mac approved hardware, and stuff as genaric as that I would put money on it having drivers already.

    USB floppy support should be plug and play
