I wonder if they make USB 5¼ floppy drives 🤔

@efi i'm mostly finding things that are not 5¼ floppy drives that are made to fit in 5¼ drive bays

@aeva I think I saw an article once about how someone basically had to gut a USB 3.5" floppy drive, and use it's adapter to interface with the 5.25" inch drive, but then it worked fine.

@aeva if you put a 5.25" floppy drive inside the shell of an external enclosure (say from an early CD/DVD drive) and rig a power connection and a USB controller!! I've been meaning to do this.
