Interesting. I have an external 5.25" floppy with a DB-25 connector and
its own power supply brick. I found the DB25 connector odd, mostly since
I've never seen an external 5.25" drive except for Apple ][s, and this
one was obviously not for Apple ][s since the later model Apple drives
used a DB15. I wonder if this is compatible with it? Or just a generic
external PC-compat drive.
