click here for external USB floppy drives or you can use any photo media card as a floppy (assuming that the receiving computer has a card reader). If you are using it at home I can see no reason or necessity to put XP pro on it...leave well enough alone.

I do my work invoices quotes etc and a lot of pleasure time playing about to learn, plus a bit of photography stuff.
GANDALF thanks for the link just ordered a sony floppy for £26 delivered.
