• Save Files to External Device due to Defective FDD

    From jaugustine@verizon.net@21:1/5 to All on Mon Mar 26 09:45:49 2018
    Hi,

    I have a few Win95 laptops from around 1996. Every one of them has a defective FDD (floppy disk drive).

    Is there an external FDD that plugs into the parallel port (with driver of course) or maybe a PCM card to USB 1 adapter?

    Thank You in advance, John

    PS, In the meantime, I can use "PC Link" (laplink type program) to transfer files, but not very convenient.

    Ooops, I forgot an important detail:

    The "PCM" card is actually a PCMCIA card.
