If you ask a different folks about their opinions on a given topic you will likely get different answers. This sentiment has been true for a while now with regards to the need of a floppy drive. Yes, those little plastic covered disks are out of date, but unless you have been quick to jump on Windows Vista, odds are good you will have need of one when it comes time to install an operating system on your brand new SATA drive.
So you go out and get a floppy drive and maybe even just install it for OS installations then put it away. But what if you could get some added functionality from your device? Would that make a difference? After all, floppy drives are pretty handy for BIOS flashes and hardware firmware updates too.
Enter Scythe, a company that has been around since late 2002 and are well known for their cooling products. Its aim is to give the DIY crowd something workable at a reasonable price. One of Scythe's latest projects was to create a device that works with a lot of different media types but also includes the functionality of a floppy drive. Basically the YD-8V08 is a 3.5-inch device that combines a card reader (18 formats according to the marketing media) and a floppy drive. Does it all work together? Read on to see for yourself.
