Hi Grant,

How could I have missed LaCie?! I have not used their drives in a while.  I guess I'm hard coded to think LaCie = SCSI hard disks.  I'll keep an eye out for LaCie or Big Blue floppy drives.

    I’ve used a LaCie USB floppy drive with my MacBook Pro and MacBook Air for years. Super solid. Unfortunately, those drives were discontinued a long time ago. I also have a couple of IBM-branded drives which I picked up on eBay last year. I believe they use the Imation innards. All of these floppy drives are driverless. I haven’t run into a Mac yet that they won’t work with.
