    I was wondering if there was a way to connect like a USB or Floppy Drive to the iPhone 4 to copy songs and movies and stuff?

    A floppy could theoretically work. If it is FAT formated, has a DCIM folder at the root of the drive, and is USB capable. All you'd need is the camera adapter and some (1) photos on the floppy in the DCIM folder.

    A floppy what? ;)

    And no, I don't think anyone makes anything like that. Apple wouldn't allow it either. It would have to be a jailbreak thing.

    No, but you may be able to ram a stiff drive in there if you try hard enough :eek:

    The standard ones I think only held 1.44MB, I think 2MB was unformatted.

    Hey just check out the posters name. He does not want to limit himself to only having the option of a flash drive. Someday the opportunity might arise that he needs to snag something off a disk that has most likely failed but still worth trying ;) He prefers multiple forms of media.... and his name is Will...

    All the hate toward floppy drives.
    I remember when you could put any file on a floppy and it would fit. A song or 2. a powerpoint. a word document. Damn huge ass files these days.

    I remember installing Photoshop with floppies! (I still have that version) You sat there and waited until Disk 1 was ejected and were prompted for Disk 2, etc.
    Good times!

    I was the first to adopt Zip drives! I loved them! Zip 100 rocked! Much less expensive than SyQuest drives. iOmega Jaz drives sucked!

    I think saying zip disk would be a lot more appropriate than a floppy. At least you could fit a (very short) video on one.

    I still have (in the attic) an 8" floppy drive and the floppies with CP/M on them.
    :eek:


    My first hard drive (on a card) was all of 10Mb. I thought I would never in my life need more storage, after all, who would ever have more than 10Mb of files ...
