Well, at least I think it is a good idea. Interested in feedback, but more importantly can SanDisk make this product?!
Analogy: Ok think of people converting old VHS tapes to DVD....
How about us folks who go retro and who the heck owns a floppy drive anymore - maybe a USB one, but...
IDEA: A USB memory stick (only needs to be 1 gig or even less, so cheap to manufacture) that has built in FLOPPY EMULATION, so that you pop it into your USB port and you have an instant a: drive with 500 to 1000 virtual floppies onboard. Great for converting old floppies to a simple USB memory stick. In addition to floppy emulation, there should be some sort of disc-copy program, preferably one that copies exact sectors so that you can copy old system disks. I would thin this would be quite useful.
