    So, I just recently picked up a old powerbook 180c, but it doesn't have an os on it. So I need to download the System 7.5.3 off apple's website and put it on floppies to get this thing up and running. Problem is I don't have another mac with a floppy drive (I only have a 12" powerbook). So I'm looking for the best external usb floppy drive solution. I'd be very interested in any experience with external floppy drives any of you have had. I'm just looking for good quality at a good price. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Most USB floppy drives these days are quite cheap aren't they ? Haven't used one with a mac since Panther though.

    Cost

    They are a little more expensive than I thought they probably would, but they aren't too bad. About $20-30 as far as I can tell.
