Ideas on using old floppy disks

My partner Lynne has just found a load of old floppy drives that have stuff on she would like to recover - pics and docs etc.

Now I I have looked around for some sort of adaptor that will hook up the drive to a USB port but am having no luck.
I can hook up the power and data cables ok but to get it converted to a USB input is proving extremely hard.

Any ideas please??
