Smallexternal disk drive/reader

I am trying to find a way to read the 150-300 disks (3 1/4" or 3 1/2"???). I want to review them (mainly photos and Word documents) before trashing the after copying the good files.

My old laptop with that size drive died and would like a external reader/drive that would make it easy to transfer to my HP desktop (fast processor, 2GB ram) for saving. Ideally, it should have a USB connection of easier connectivity. I also have a 3 year old HP laptop with 2 GB ram.

I am looking for qualified suggestions before resorting to the Ebay jungle.

Thanx!!

Dick

After a google search for USB Floppy Drive I got 2,040,000 hits. They sell them at BestBuy and Staples. If I can't use the words Staples and BestBuy then mods can do at their discretion to edit it out. And they are 3 1/2"
