How to convert a floppy disc of 1.4 MB to 128 GB

For us Floppy Disc is and old business and it still continuing. Your computers are still floppy disc compatible. The only issue with floppy discs are the storage it can hold. It can hold only 1.4 MB of data.

You could convert your old very easily using an SD card which conventionally fit into the floppy metal shutter. Through a slight adjustment to the connector pins in the computer and rewriting, you will get a floppy disc of 128GB of storage. The new upgrade brings your old friend from its storage limits of 90’s.

To follow this you should have pretty good background in tinkering. You have to cut up and modify some hardware pieces and run the floppy/SD connection using a USB connection.

    This is method is getting much popularity nowadays. I have actually got this idea from another source. Me personally done this. It's a good one. You don't want to spent much money for this. All you need is a memory card and the technical knowledge to alter the floppy.
