Does it read floppies just fine? It's too bad you're across the pond, I think I've got a couple of spares.
Beater is the last of my PBs without a ZIP Drive, that's the new Floppy as far as I'm concerned. ZIP works WAAAYYYYYY better than USB Keychain drives or SD Chiplets between my OS9 USB Macs and my Win7 and ubuntu NetBooks.
I've already thoroughly thrashed a Chiplet and a couple of Keychains, the 16GB KCHN was particularly painful to lose.
