The 1.44 drive will read and write Apple ProDos 3.5" floppies.

As for plugging in an Apple II drive into the floppy port on the Mac,
don't do it unless you are sure the drive is one compatible with the mac.
Most of the A2 drives were not, even though they had the same connector.
They could damage the Mac. There were however some that were compatible
with the Mac. I know there was a 3.5" drive that worked with the Mac or
the A2, and I think there may have also been a 5.25" drive that worked
with both (not counting the one for the A2e card that plugged into the
card's adaptor cable).
