This item is perfect for you. While it will do read Mac proprietary SuperDrive diskettes (remember the 800K and 1600KB diskettes?), it will read any drive formatted to the 720KB or 1.44MB standard. Starting from Mac OS X 10.2 and up, the drivers are built into the operating system so it is literally plug-n-play. The drive is powered through the USB port so no AC adapter is needed. How cool is that?
