Default USB Floppy Drive?

Anyone have one of these? I need one for school and class papers and some other things. Which is the best one for the money. I am looking no more than 25 bucks lol. Any ideas, suggestions?

You could get one cheaply from Ebay. I would recomend a USB thumb drive though.

I totally agree, you must be careful with these though. You could also get a ZIP (Everyone says they're dying but there still ****ing cool!).

Ahh, good call. I never though of a thumb drive. I would tell you to go with a thumb drive over a zip disk. If you want to carry along you thumbdrive, you can use it on 98% of all computers. (Arbitrary percentaage, but it seems about right. The 98% being computers with USB, and 2% of computers without. Believe it or not, I still see them)and with a Zip disk, you can only use it on computers with that drive. And thumb drives are cheaper.
