The floppy port one was called the Hard Disk 20 (Hard Drive 20?? damn, I
always screw that up). You are right on the SCSI one (20SC). And there is
a 2nd product that I am aware of Apple made for the floppy port. An
external 400k floppy drive. They may have made other external floppies
for the Mac that use the floppy port as well (800k maybe, but I don't
think they made a 1.44 external)

There were of course other floppy drives made for floppy ports on the
IIgs, but I don't know if that is the same functionality, so I don't know
if those could have been used on the Mac.
