I have a usb external 3.5 and a couple internal ones but I think I got rid of all my 5.25 drives, though I do have a box of parts I havent opened in quite a while, good luck with reading the old apple files on a pc though if I recall they are a different format... Linix might have something though...


I did find this though 5.25 to usb adapter review

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

Really it'd probably be easier for you to find a really old PC that has it, theres gotta be some in your area or in the dump?

Really wish I could experience an SSD but of course my bank tells me that I can not.
