Since more and more computers are being shipped without floppy disk drives, how are people making evidence images of floppy disks? I know there are USB floppy drives on the market (they were very popular when the iMac first hit the market), but do these require drivers?
Ideally I'd like to be able to take a dd image of a disk on a linux system, but if USB drives require special drivers will they work? if they appears just like any other USB mass storage device then I guess that's OK. Also, are any of the drives limited by the disk format? Some floppy drives I recall would not read the specially formatted 2.88Mb disks. I doubt I will ever see one, but if I am going to shell out for a drive I'd like one that does everything.
