      Comments about LaCie External Floppy Disk Drive USB 2.0 for PC/Mac:

      Unfortunately, the LaCie external USB floppy disk drive did not succeed in loading/mounting any of my 3.5 inch 1.4MB floppy disks formatted for Mac on my current iMac Intel Core 2 Duo using OS 10.7. Accordingly, I was unable to retrieve any floppy disk files using this drive.

        Works fine on Windows 7 (that's my OS). Use for transfer of MIDI files from older computers -- again, works great.

              I AM USING THE DRIVE TO READ MANY FLOPPY DISKS THAT HOLD MANY HUNDREDS OF MY PHOTOS.

              I SHOULD HAVE PURCHASED ONE MUCH SOONER BUT AM HAPPY THAT I NOW HAVE IT.

              IT WORKS PERFECTLY WITH MY I-MAC AND ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS

                Comments about LaCie External Floppy Disk Drive USB 2.0 for PC/Mac:

                This hot swappable floppy drive actually works on the Mac OS. ( A few others I have tried do not work on the MacBook Pro.) ++++B&H++++ I have some legacy hardware that uses floppies so these are a great addition to the labs.

                Comments about LaCie External Floppy Disk Drive USB 2.0 for PC/Mac:

                Yes I know, floppy discs are history. But I want to be able to play them if the occasion should arise and this LaCie unit is priced right. And drives like this are already hard to find. And I'm only half kiding about the best use listed above
