Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2010

Remember when 3.5-inch floppy disks were cutting edge? They were tougher than their 5.25-inch predecessors and could hold more data. That was a long time ago. There isn’t much use for them nowadays. Or is there?

For $45 even die-hard fans would call this a rip-off. If you buy this one, you deserve to have your credit card ripped from your hand and your butt-crack swiped with it until you need a maxi-pad.

Floppy disk drive with built in memory card reader
Here’s a strange combination you don’t see everyday. It mixes a 7-in-1 card reader with a floppy drive. This allows you to transfer files from your old floppies over to memory card. Limited to the speed of the floppy. The problem is not many people use the floppy anymore.

Even if you have some floppy disks laying around, chances are they no longer work. This one is probably not a great idea, even though we do love gadgets where they’ve combined new with old. Though some pack rats are sure to have boxes of disks and refuse to stop using them, those people are surfing the net using a 286 machine and will never find this article.
