Just What I Needed
on February 3, 2012
When my computer suddenly died (the technician said he would have to replace every single part except the cabinet) I was faced with the loss of all that drivel I've been saving on 3.5 inch floppy disks. Not Shakespeare of course, but the stuff seemed important to me. When I found the SmartDisk External Floppy Disk Drive on amazon.com I ordered it right away. It arrived in a couple of days, in a surprisingly small package, and I couldn't wait to get started. It is a very small gadget, with a USB connection, and that's it. No software needed, just plug it in. My fancy new computer quickly recognized it, and lo and behold, there were the missing files.
This is a great little device. It's compatible with Windows XP, Vista and 7. I'm completely satisfied with it. If you have some old floppy disks with missing works of genius, pictures, or whatever, I recommend this piece of equipment withoout reservation. Reviewed by Louis N. Gruber.
