See: disk, disk drive.
The hardware in a PC which reads/writes data from/to a floppy disk
A device that reads data from and writes data to a floppy diskette.
A disk drive that accepts either the 3.5-inch or 5.25-inch diskette.
The mechanism that reads a floppy disk. (On a PC often called the a: drive.)
A storage device that reads from and writes to floppy disks.
The transportable media recorder/player fitted as standard on the original and current PCs. Less use is being made now of the good old floppy, since the introduction of other higher capacity media types, such as Zip disks, CDs and DVDs, but it is still essential for moving small files around and for loading rescue files in a crippled PC.
A mechanism that can store and retrieve information on a floppy disk.
A mechanism that enables a computer to read and write information on floppy disks.
This commonly refers to a 3.5 inch disk drive that uses 1.44 MB 3.5 inch floppy disks. However, the term can be used to apply to any drive that uses floppy...
A 3.5 inch disk drive that uses 1.44 MB floppy disks, or diskettes.
As opposed to the hard disk drive, the standard floppy drive reads removable diskettes. Most computers come standard with a 3.5' floppy drive, but internal Zip drives and SuperDisk drives are becoming more and more commonplace. While the Internet is replacing them (much to many users' chagrin, Apple's iMac comes without a floppy drive), floppy drives are still a nice way to share a file quickly with the person next door or to backup data.

A floppy disk drive is the hardware on a computer that reads data from and writes data to a floppy disk.
A mechanism that reads and writes information to a floppy disk. The 31/2-inch size drive comes standard on most desktop PCs.
A hardware device that can read data inserted into it from diskettes and write information out onto diskettes. Early diskettes were flexible plastic and called "floppy." Most diskettes today are no longer floppy, but the term stuck for the disk drive that reads them, as opposed to a hard disk drive.
A device used to read the floppy disk and transfer the information to the computer.
(FDD) This is the hardware that reads 3.25 inch floppy disks. Like I said, these aren't much used anymore since the dawn of the flash drive, however they are not extinct yet. computer hardware definition
The device on a computer into which floppy diskettes are inserted.
Device that can read from and write on a floppy disk. 1.7, 7.6
