I'm not really sure what you want to achieve. But you probably need a bridge Mac that can transfer files between the 400k floppies of the Mac 512k and the "modern" world (1.44 floppy, network, zip drive, usb stick, ...). New external floppy drives cannot read the 400k/800k GCR floppy format of the classic Macs.
