What compatibility issues do USB Floppy drives have?

I'm looking to either replace my current motherboard to get one with a Floppy header (for £18) or a USB Floppy drive.

One reason I'm looking at an internal is because of compatibility issues I had with my previous USB drive, when I went to install XP with a floppy I found out I had to modify the disk to load USB drivers.

That was easy to overcome but I'm concerned about if anything else can have similar issues so I'm just wondering what else could have issues with a USB drive over an internal one?

Thank You.

    Compatibility or convenience e.g. old floppies I come across, sending small files to old systems without USB (or even CD) support, install XP SATA drivers without having to burn a disc, etc.
