My SmartDisk VST still works with Snow Leopard, model number FDUSB-M. It's still available from Internet stores.
However, support for HFS+ with Mountain Lion is problematic.
Additionally: the VST only required software to work with OS9. It works natively with SL. With Lion and Mountain Lion it sees previously formatted floppies, but only allows formatting with FAT and ExFat. And, in my experience, it only works reliably with previoulsy formatted FAT 32 floppies.
How about the Bytecc Slim Black USB External Floppy Disk Drive? It is at the local Micro Center, but the box for every external floppy drive over at the store calls for OS 8 or 9.
I am working right now with a borrowed Imation floppy drive. Its owner lent me the software disc. That software does not install in OS 10.6, but the Imation operates happily without it.
I wonder the Bytecc would, too.
