Default photo printer that accepts floppy disks?

Recently decided to go the wave of stand alone type photo printers & get one for my Sony Mavica FD-75 camera. However, all the new printers seem to only accept smart card or memory stick type of technologies and I have floppy storage.

Not quite ready to upgrade cameras at this point because camera is serving my original purpose of "point & click" with easy, cheap storage & email options, etc. However, it would be nice to have a printer available for quick photos without having to use a computer all the time.

I was really surprised that something so "basic" of a concept - at least to little ol' non-techie me - doesn't seem to exist.

Any suggestions of brand, models, etc that do exist? Or other options to print? What do other Mavica FD owners do?

I doubt there are any. using floppies in a camera is pretty old school. Solid state media (CF, SM, memory stick, etc.) is a lot more modern. Time to upgrade that camera!

Jeff is correct, there are no printers that accept floppies as a media.
