Labreastude D810 floppy 1568
My D810 came with an excellent floppy drive. It can be put in place of the CD-DVD drive and it also has a USB connector to make it an external unit.
The great thing is that it works with just about any other computer with USB ports. I haven't tried to boot out of the floppy as an external unit, but my guess is that if the motherboard supports booting from USB, this drive will boot as well.
The drive has two identifying numbers: Model no MPF82E Dell P-N 6Y185
I'd look it up on ebay using either of those numbers. But don't be surprised to find it under some other name. Dell uses some part numbers for original equipment and other part numbers for replacement equipment. Go to the Dell website as well.
When did Dell start integrating USB 2.0
Does anybody know which is the earliest Dell Dimension or Optiplex that has integrated USB 2.0 ports? I am...
Oh, and the D810 battery is under the laptop, so you can't really put a floppy or any other thing there. You must be thinking of the C series laptops, with two expansion slots on the front, both of which took batteries, and one of them would take also a floppy, CD-DVD or hard drive.
