  23. Need a 5.25' Floppy in Windows XP? www.deviceside.com - "USB floppy drives are widely available, but those currently on the market only support 3.5" disks. The new interface, due to be released later this year, connects to 5.25" drives. It will also allow the owners of modern computers to read a variety of old disk formats that ordinary floppy controllers no longer support.

    The final product will read many disk formats, but the prototype only reads Apple II disks, so please leave your IBM or CP/M floppies at home for now. The product will be available in 2007."
