without ISA and FDC I do not know how to get my old drives working..
Buy an old PC?
Not necessarily that old, depending on your definition of "old". New
PCs and motherboards at least as recently as 2009 were still shipping
with ISA bus floppy controllers. Examples:
I tend to think "old" once they're less than SFr100 on ebay/ricardo.
I have the last, with 3.5" floppy, though a SFF model in which a
standard 5.25" floppy drive could not physically fit.
We have recently begun upgrading office PCs to Lenovo S10 - they also
have an FDD interface, as well as the slots for a 3.5" or 5.25" floppy
drive. Mind you, the fdd interface is blocked by the graphics card :-)
ROTFL, same for my server/workstation. So, NVIDIA card out, CD/DVD device out
and I could have a floppy drive.
Sorry to say so, but I see absolutely no reason to return to such media.
