Yes, and maybe.

The ROMS in the SE dictate that it can't use more than an 800k drive. So
a standard external 1.4 drive will still only operate as an 800k drive in
an SE that doesn't have the newer FDHD roms (if it works at all).

However, I do believe there were drives that had special drivers that let
the SE use 1.4 disks. I'm just not sure of brands or availability.
