The floppy EMU is cool definately worth picking one up (for the earliest macs), there is also this for faster transfers (for Mac's that have the 25pin scsi)...

I will note - sometimes the SCSI can be bad/flakey on systems w/ leaking caps. The Floppy port however almost always works.

> Maybe I’ve missed someone else mentioning it, but I strongly suggest BMOW’s FloppyEMU, for archiving from vintage machines. That gives you disk images that you can directly use, in emulators. Obviously, it requires an external floppy port, to use easily, but you can connect one to an internal floppy port, as a fallback.
