Installing 5 1⁄4 inch floppy drive on Windows 7!

I’m just old enough to remember the days when computer games, programs, and the like were stored on those god-awful 5 1/4 inch discs. Data storage technology has improved with time and I can’t remember the last time and I really don’t miss the computer’s B drive. Those discs didn’t hold much, they were awkward to transport, and really easy to wreck. I don’t think I’ve actually used a 5 1/4 inch disc since 1993 or so.

Housemate happens to have a lot of computer stuff, some of it is even in use! Not too long ago I stumbled upon a 5 1/4 drive in his bedroom amongst the computer stuff that was not in use and thought it would be interesting to see if I could get it to work on Windows 7. This is what I’m using:

AMD Dual Core Kuma 7850 with 4 gigs of ram
Two terabyte hard drive
ATI Radeon 4870 one gigabyte
MSI K9A2 Platinum motherboard

Anyways, here’s the video!
