    I want a cheap black floppy, has to be black to match the case.
    No cables as ill just take them from an old broken motherboard i have.

    Its for a linux box.

    I saw ones with card readers but they looked dear im not paying £20 for a floppy/card reader.

    Not looking to spend more than £4, I will pay shipping itll prolly be like £1 anyway.

    Pay Pal only im afraid, i dont like doing bank transfers ect pay pal is safe for me.

    May I ask why?

    I just bought an external floppy to install some old floppy games(Decent, Original Wolfensiten, Doom I & II). Cost me like $15 USD, but the nostalgic memories will be well worth it.

    i could get a usb floppy drive, its more for the old disks i have and flashing, i guess having a usb floppy drive would be handy as i could just use it for any pc in my house

    thought it would be better to have internal since my mobo has only 2 usb ports and i might need them one for mouse one for wireless adapter although then i could get a pci wireless card
