External floppy drives

  Red dog 20:18 24 Nov 2003

I am looking to buy an external floppy drive but not sure which type I need for a new laptop. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between a USB and a 2XUSB. A reccomendation for which to buy would be appreciated if possible especially in the £30 to £40 price range. Red dog

Wouldn't a 32 Mbytes USB pocket drive be better value?

Thanks Alan2273 for your information, it seems to be the one I am looking for. I agree with what you say re the pocket drive Pesala but I am acting for someone else. I will give them the suggestions from both of you and take from there. Thanks again

This summer I bought a USB Lacie external floppy reader for a friend. It is excellent, and cost £38, all in, from Dabs.

Thanks to you too. I have printed this and will pass it on. He has enough gen now to make a good choice
