Although most people don' t use a floppy disk anymore I wanted to have one (which has a 7+1 card reader on it), because I have meny diskettes from some time ago and I want to transfer their data in one hard drive. The problem is that the IDE cable of the Floppy disk does not fit in the Floppy disk drive connector of the motherboard.
I have not any problem with my old PC with the Asus P5Q Deluxe motherboard, which has thea 34-1 pin Floppy for connection.
Is there a way to solve this problem of compatibility ?
Thank you GeorgeMMM

Hi G..

I don't believe the board has a floppy drive port...   so what you want is a USB floppy drive...  You can not connect a floppy cable to an IDE port as far as I know...  I don't know of any adapter that can do that.

Hello GeoMan... Do a search on Google for "USB Floppy Drive" One example here in Canada is "PowerUp G54-8016 External USB Floppy Drive"... I hope this helps...
