Having problems with your Dell Latitude D505 Notebook ?
Is there a floppy disk accessory for this model
Yes there is. It is an optional 3.5 FDD external unit. If you check the available ports you should be able to find several external floppy drives that will be compatible. You can also get it straight from dell although you will pay a premium.
External is the only option though.
Hope this helps.

Better yet, you can purchase a USB diskette drive at Best Buy, Fry's Electronics.
