Floppy Emulation

As part of my work with people with dyslexia I have to carry a laptop and assorted equipment.

My latest laptop has a USB floppy (large & heavy).

As part of our quality control our software writes to a floppy disk after every consultation.

I would like to find a way of replacing the portable floppy with a hard drive emulator (it's not possible to modify the software to write to C:).

Does anyone know of a way of emulating a floppy?
