Are 120mb Floppies still available?

Not really a Help question (in the true sense of the word).

I have just found a 120mb Floppy drive in my "Come in Handy" box.

Can you still get 120mb floppy disks?

I have tried Google but not much luck.

I can't try it in either of my PCs because I don't have any IDE connections available, but I do have an external connector which will accept anything IDE, click here

If the 120mb floppy disks are not available though there is no point in keeping it.

No, I think they're gone. Floppy's are almost extinct. Use a CD-RW or even a Flash Drive, on the thread I just made, 1GB for £12.99. It's instant transfer, faster than a floppy, more reliable, and can do more.l

Proved me wrong.

crx1600, thanks.

Will give one a try.

Also checking my local supplier to see if I can get any from there.
