5.0 out of 5 stars Mac compatible plug and play, 4 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PC Trading® Portable Slim Line USB 3.5" 1.44Mb External Floppy Disk Drive - Compatible with Win 98, Win 2000, Win XP, Win Vista, Win 7 (32-Bit + 64-Bit) - Driver CD Included - Black (Electronics)
It's a small lightweight yet high quality Floppy Disk Drive.
I bought it to file share between my 2012 iMac and my 1989 Macintosh SE30.
I ended up file sharing between a 2005 Powerbook G4 and the 1989 SE30.

It was plugged into my iMac and I was able to read Files ONLY.

I was NOT able to write any though - but this is a fault with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and NOT the Floppy Drive.

It can read and write any Macintosh format - IF you have the OS X version which is capable of doing this.

I have a Powerbook G4 which I had to use to File share instead - it has OS X 10.4 Tiger and is perfect.

Just plug and play. Inserting a diskette mounts it on the Finder and it reads and writes and formats HD disks as normal.
I didn't try any non-HD disks.

Overall, very happy and very useful to have for such a cheap price.
