Default SDCard => Floppy Drive Adapter ??

Hello,

Can someone advise me as to whether or not a company manufacturers/sells a SDCard to Floppy Drive adapter?

I know that Sony makes a MemoryStick to Floppy adapter. I don't understand why someone wouldn't make a Floppy Drive adapter for the SDCards.

If someone knows of such a device and point me to their website or a page selling these I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks,

CCC

i take it your computer doesn't support USB?

B&H has it. its a floppy to mmc adapter the sd and mmc form factor are identical and so is the operations except or the security feature. thats internal to the card. it won't affect it.
the cost is $99.

why not a USB connection? massively faster. if it is an older machine with win 98 and an open pci slot it can be upgraded for less than the price of the flashpath card and thats with the reader. about $50-60. on a home machine
