5 1/4 are for sissies. Real computer users stick to 8 inchers.LOL...I haven't bought floppies in a decade! Plenty of other sites though, I just posted one USA outfit...5.4's How times have changed..Now we have our 16GB sticks, Pegasus arrays etc! I remember feeding em in though!
If you mean 3.5" disks (not really "floppy"... but...):Where can i get new mac floppies?:
Don't those machines have USB ports? Thus using a flash drive would be better. If so, just use a floppy drive to make ISO images of the floppies and then you're set to go. If no USB port, than I'm not sure what you could do.If you still have an old Mac that needs floppies, then yes. If I had an old Mac Classic or even a Performa, I'd probably try to get some of the old classic games running on it, and I'd probably need floppies for some of that.
USB on a Classic? You must be out of your mind. You must not be familiar with these, they're from long before USB was even invented.Don't those machines have USB ports?

If you bought a synthesizer for several thousand dollars that stores samples on floppy disk, and you have the choice of throwing away a perfectly fine music instrument and replacing it by something modern that was probably built by people who don't know the first thing about music, or use floppy disks, what would you do?Is there any good reason to use them?
Oh, I unfortunately don't have one. My oldest machine right now is an iBook G3. I just wish I could get one of those, or something similar. It was more an example of what someone might need the floppies for.Nah, no problems man. What do you use a machine like that for though? Or is it just for your collection?
