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:
My desktop machine has a floppy drive, I installed it just in case I want
to inspect and retrieve some data from old floppies I have.
I still have some old backups made in floppies which I wish to retrieve
The bay would accept a 5¼" drive (same size as cdrom drive, but of course,
I have a 3½ only.
