Native ST/STE floppy drive support?

Thanks for replying and sorry for the super slow reply from me!

You're right. Probably too much of a headache.

I wonder though, since vintage floppy drives are many and their compatibility qualities vary, what about those new floppy drives, like the one from esync, that don't connect via a 34-pin connector but USB? There's no USB input on the Supercard Pro, but would a USB-34-pin adapter work?

If not, I'd gladly take any advice you can give me on what floppy drive models would be good to track down.
