IBM's own external drives used a DB37 connector. If it belongs to a PC,
I'm guessing it is for use with one specific vendor's machine.

It is -possible- that it could belong to an Amiga. AFAIR, the Amiga's
external floppy port is DB25 (mine's not in front of me at the moment),
but the A1010 external 3.5" floppy I have gets power from the computer.

I don't count myself an expert on external floppy drives, though.
