This looks like what you would need:

No, that's not what is needed. It's not being installed into a 5.25" bay. @Ac1d 53rp3n7 specified a 3.5" bay.

If that 3.5'' HDD bay has an opening to the outside of the case it should be usable.

Screw hole might not line up, depending on the hdd bay, but thats nothing a drillbit wont fix. As for there not being a hole for it in the front cover, a dremel takes care of that too.

question. why are you even trying to use a 3.5 floppy at all.?
and if you have an empty hdd bay, get another hdd..
total waste of time and space using a 3.5 floppy.
but to answer your question, if you have the proper connectors lined up,
anything is possible so yes technically you can.
I hope you know that the 3.5 floppy and the hdd have different connection interfaces.

yes i know the connectors are different, and i have a floppy drive so i thought i might aswell use it somewhere and i dont intend for having many more hdds :D
