I think I still have a 20MB Tulin 3.5" drive around somewhere. And
there's always the Imation Superdrive available in SCSI.
In conventional floppies, Teac offered the FD-235HS 3.5" in SCSI.
And there were makers (Xebec, OMTI) of SCSI-to-floppy bridge cards.
SCSI floppies are fine as long as you don't need to get "creative"
with sector sizing and ID marks. Remember that SCSI is essentially a
relative-block type of protocol, so you can forget about reading
those Microsoft DMF floppies.
