What's an FDD?



A floppy disk drive, also called FDD or FD for short, is a computer disk drive that enables a user to save data to removable diskettes. Although 8" disk drives were first made available in 1971, the first real disk drives used were the 5 1/4" floppy disk drives, which were later replaced with the 3 1/2" floppy disk drives.

By 2006 computers were rarely manufactured with installed floppy disk drives; 3 1 ⁄ 2-inch floppy disks can be used with an external USB floppy disk drive, but USB drives for 5 1 ⁄ 4-inch, 8-inch, and non-standard diskettes are rare to non-existent. These formats are usually handled by older equipment.
