I have just got a new computer and need a floppy drive in it for some of my older stuff, I have one in my old computer, can I just unplug it and put it in the new one and it recognise it or is it a bios job and thus far beyond me. I`m not at all techie but I think I could do a swap myself, or would it be easier to buy a USB floppy and connect that? Many thanks for any replies I may get.
A USB memory stick always comes in handy at some point and you can get 256Mb for a few pounds these days. As long as your old PC has USB ports (new one surely must have), it is the best way (and a hell of a lot quicker).
Many thanks for the very helpful replies, you really are a kind bunch. I shall take the easy option and get a USB one, I do this for ease and so as to not void my warranty. Once again, many thanks, Brian.
I suspect that you wouldn't have voided your warranty by installing an extra peripheral i.e a floppy disk, targa for instance put a seal on their PCs but say that taking off the seal only means that you can't claim for missing parts
