Here is a quote from the Fuji website, looks like the answer is not yet :-
"Q: What accessories will be available to support the launch of xD-Picture Cards?
A: At launch, PC (PCMCIA) card adaptors and USB card readers will be available. A CompactFlash™ adaptor is in development that will allow the use of xD-Picture Cards in cameras designed to use CompactFlash™ media.

Q: Are there any plans to produce a floppy disk adaptor for xD-Picture Cards?
A: No. The floppy disk drive is becoming less popular, therefore it was not considered appropriate to provide an adaptor to support this format"

Belatucadrus - thank you for the reply. It looks as if installing a usb port and thus windows 98 is the only way forward. Or a new pc maybe.
