    Specs:
    MacBook
    Floppy Drive support in 10.1.5
    I was hoping that someone here could help me.
    I have a G3 Wallstreet PB and I was looking for a way to enable floppy drive support under
    OS X 10.1.5....I have the HD set to dual boot OS 9 and OS X, so its not a major deal, I can always boot to
    OS 9 if I really really need to use a floppy (which is rare), but it is a hassle. I have tried a few searches on the web and have found that while it may be possible, none of the sites actually explained in detail on how to accomplish it. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance!

    Here is a floppy that works in OS X.

    I would assume that you have to load in a driver for OS X to use it.

    Thanks, I hadn't seen that one before.
    I was kinda hoping to use the swapable floppy drive I already have wtih the PB though
    But maybe I can find some drivers ...who knows maybe the internal would work with it?
