This is mainly a matter of curiosity, but the only item fitting this description I've managed to
find so far is
and the Q&A says that it's either Out of Stock, or not actually an *external USB* FDD.
And then there was this ridiculously priced one
for which it says "Can't be connected to a modern computer." (Mitsumi was a decent brand,
per my recollection.)
So, I'm still seeking proof of this mythical (?) beast.
I have an old tower rig in storage that has two internal FDDs, covering both floppy types. I was
going to disassemble it and
give most of it to electronic recycling. But the system still booted up when last I tested it a
year or so ago, and it does have
controller support for a now mostly gone type of HDD. So maybe I'll just hold onto it ?
