✔ Best Answer
You seem to know what you need--a usb floppy drive--so are you having a problem finding one or are you not sure if windows 8 will recognize the drive?

Ebay or any computer or office supply store should have them. They should all be USB 2.0 compatible and I assume 3.0 also but you may want to verify that before any purchase. When windows sees it a drive letter will be assigned--probably a:--and you're ready to go.
