Default floppy drive for pops

so he got himself a new puter, but this one does not have a floppy port,of course

will a sata to floppy adapter(if they exist) work out ok with his floppy drive?

he tried his software from a usb one and it did not see it, so it must be an internal one.

thanks guys

I'd be more surprised to see that a sata to floppy exists. I think if anything there would be IDE to FDD..

curiously, what does he use floppies for in the 21st century anyways?

As you can see above, some Mobo manufacturers have archaic ways still of flashing BIOS.

I wish they would allow USB like ASUS/GB do lol.

Good Luck Dan,
