Loan of an external floppy disk drive

Would like to borrow one to copy some old files onto my computer

I would like to borrow an external floppy disk drive / reader if anyone out there still has one of these.

Was doing a sort out and found a bunch of old floppy disks, some of which have info I'd like to keep.

I have connectors for almost any type of port, so any type of connection should work.

I would only need this for a day or two.

I am in Mangere Bridge and could travel up to half an hour to pick this up.

Thank you!

    I know someone who has a floppy disk reader but is installed into their PC case. I may be able to take it out and lend it to you only if you give something worthy in return so I was wondering what are willing to exchange?

    Thanks warfan, but that does sound like a hassle asking your friend to uninstall his/her floppy disk reader from their PC case. I'll wait and see if anyone can help with an external drive.

    And, as you seem to be new to the site, here's a couple of lines from the philosophy behind it:

    "There’s a name for a community that asks, gives and shares without looking for an immediate return on their investment – it’s called a Gift Economy. People create and give without expectation of an immediate return. We’re hoping AskShareGive will help create a community where people want to Ask, Share and Give." http://www.asksharegive.org.nz/Help/About 

    I've been giving away a bunch of stuff on this site for free, so hopefully what goes around comes around and someone out there will be willing to lend me something when I need it.
