    Default Anyone own an older Toshiba laptop?

    I need to upgrade my bios which requires the use of a floppy drive. However, I don't have one and can't justify spending the money on something like this since I'd only ever use it just this once. If anyone's has a floppy drive that would work on a Toshiba Tecra 8100, I'd really appreciate it if I could use it for a just a few minutes to perform the upgrade. Heck, I could even treat you to lunch for your troubles

    You're in luck. Now to find the drive...

    Do you need just the drive to fit into the bay? Or do you need the external enclosure with the toshiba specific plug? I have both, but they're lost somewhere in my house... haha

    Floppy drive didn't fit. Here's what the connection to the external drive looks like:
