Anyone know a solution for connecting an IDE 34 pin floppy drive into a modern motherboard like my Asus Maximus XI Formula? Even a way to convert it into a 40 or 44 pin as there are lots of adapters for those.

You are watching: Connect floppy drive to sata motherboard

(Yes I know using an external usb floppy drive is easier. I just think it would be awesome for my gaming PC to have a working internal floppy drive.)

There are plenty of USB adapters. You may also require a Floppy power adapter too.

I have been unable to locate a 34-pin IDE to SATA adapter though - just USB.

A surprising amount of power supplies still have the power connector needed for a floppy drive, I found this IDE to SATA adapter that also comes with a floppy power to molex in the event that your PSU does not have a floppy power connector.
