More about : pin ide sata hairystuff November 8, 2011 6:58:11 PM I have been searching for something that connects usb to floppy (sata/ide to floppy doesn't exist), the only thing I could find close enough to that is a usb external floppy drive. m 0 l mbarnes86 November 8, 2011 7:01:41 PM Hi You will have very great difficulty finding an adapter for SATA or ATA (Hard Disk) to Floppy disk drive ( I have never heard of one) If the floppy interface is not available because it is a recent motherboard you will need a PCI floppy disk controller card (also hard to find) An alternative is a external USB 3.5" floppy disk drive regards Mike Barnes m 0 l Related resources 34 pin to sata? - Forum 80 Pin SCSI to Sata or IDE - Forum 40 pin ide to 7 pin sata - old hdd, new motherboard - Forum 34 pin to SATA connector for Floppy? - Forum IDE->SATA DVD drive problems, 4 pin connector doesnt fit. - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I'm not 100% sure, but I think the USB only connects the card reader and USB port on those. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
