    You can get it in floppy format yes. Costs quite a bit however.

    After inserting Disk #3711

    Error: The disk in Drive A is not formatted.
    Do you want to format it now?

    My brain shut down just looking at this image. Why are we even still supporting Floppy Drives when viable alternatives (Flash drives etc) exist.

    Try finding a proper Windows 8 computer that even has a floppy connector on it.

    I mean new, the ones with the UEFI built for windows 8 with that crappy protection built in. Of course you can use a USB but really, why would you want to.

    I still have my actual IDE floppy drive. Don't know why. Call it nostalgia.
