  • Floppy Drives, does your comp have one?

    I'm wondering about floppy drives and who's comps have it.

    My comp no longer has a floppy drive. I even have the FDD controller disabled through BIOS.

    1 in the desktop, 1 module for the laptop, 5 or so in the cupboard and now in the bin since reading this.

    Used for BIOS updates and memory checkers usually.

      None in the PC which I'm currently using so I voted no. But there is one in the laptop, and one in the shell (a PC with no hard-drives so can't call it a PC at the moment) but I can't remember the last time I used them anyway

            built my current PC myself, bought a DVD RW drive and have a USB pen. Floppy went the way of the dinosaur for me a few years back now.

                I have an external USB floppy drive. It can come in handy every now and again.

                      Not in my MDD but my Beige G3 has one, haven't used it (other then to try and get Debian on it last year) since the 90's. If I had waited 6 months and gotten a Blue and White well then no floppy.

                          Nope. Apple ditched floppies quite a few years ago; and my PC laptop doesn't have one, either.

                            There's one on the PC I use. I added it as the transit agency still sends me stuff on floppies now and then.

                              I don't have any floppy drives. With bootable optical media and USB flashdrives, they simply are not needed anymore.
