There are lots of USB 3.5" 1.4M drives.
There are several SCSI 3.5" drives (most Floptical (usually SCSI) drives
can do 1.4M)
But I don't know of any of those that can be easily modified to support
5.25" or 8" drives.
take a small PC, with either USB or SCSI, with appropriate drives, and use
the PC itself as a slave device controller.
I don't recall the name of it, but there was a small PC with a SCSI port
and a 5.25" drive, using the PC as a slave device controller, that was
MARKETED as a "DRIVE" that could "let Macs read PC and CP/M diskettes".
By THAT definition, I've seen lots of RS232 floppy drives :-)
