Allows reading and writing floppies. ComputerCraft floppies are also supported.
The main use of floppies - except being cheaper than hard drives - is to get data onto robots, since they cannot connect to external components, and only have a component slot for floppies, but not for hard drives. If you have the materials, you can build a tier three case, which has a built-in disk drive. Until then, this block is your new best friend.
The Disk Drive is crafted using the following recipe:
|Blocks||Computers||Computer Case - Server Rack - Microcontrollers|
|Display||Hologram Projector - Keyboard - Screen|
|Power and Networking||Access Point - Capacitor - Net Splitter - Power Converter - Power Distributor - Relay|
|Extensions||Adapter - Cable - Disassembler - Disk Drive - Geolyzer - Motion Sensor - Redstone I/O - Transposer - 3D Printer|
|Robotics||Assembler - Charger - Drone - Robot - Waypoint|
