I have a similar problem - a floppy full of old Mac files from 1995 that I would really like to get onto my G5, but of course, it doesn't have a floppy drive, and my PC won't read the format.

Perhaps the solution to both problems (and the reason I bring this up) is to find an external USB floppy drive that works with Macs, place your files onto a floppy (the LCIII has a floppy drive as I recall) and read it with the new drive.

Would any readers be familiar with an external floppy drive that is supported by Macs? What file format did Mac OS use? Can Mac OS X still read it?

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
