    Hi,

    do they still make floppy drives?
    I use 1 program that needs Windows. My accountant has a payroll/checkbook program that only comes on windows and to transfer the license, it requires a floppy. I've informed him that evenPC makers don't use floppys anymore, but anyway, are they still available???
    Before I pay for VPC and Windows 2000, I'd like to know.

    Thanks.
    Frank

    They still sell a few here in Tokyo (some of them multi-card readers including floppy), so I'm sure you'll still find one wherever you are.

    I have a VST Superdisk drive that ready both floppies and 120 MB Superdisks. I haven't used it in forever though since it is so painfully slow.

    Internal floppies run for about 7 bucks, externals get more expensive...around 20-30 I think.
