I do have an old DSE 3.5" USB floppy drive - which you could have if it wasn't for the fact I don't know where I put it! I was using it at the beginning of last year to try and back up a few boxes of old FDD's. Most didn't read, and its possible that the drive may just need a little head cleaning...
I'll keep my eyes peeled, but its unlikely I'll be allowed to mess up the messy room again by opening and shuffling boxes (my wife says I clean by "moving the mess from one place to another" - which is kinda true)... Though if you can find something elsewhere, take it. Ascent sell Advantech
ones - but that's like NZ$98 (ouch).
Alternatively, look on eBay. You'd be surprised how cheaply some people will ship things internationally. There's loads of brand new FDD's on there for US$13+...http://www.ebay.com/bhp/usb-floppy-drive
