Floppy Drive Controller Cards (PCI-X)

Lately I've been trying to run some old software that reside on some 5 1/4" floppies on my current PC, which isn't the newest anyway. My current PC doesn't have a 34-pin connector for 5 1/4" drives, so I'm on the lookout for a card that will take 34-pin interface. My motherboard has only 1 PCI-E x16 slot, which is occupied by the video card, which leaves 2 PCI-E x4 slots and 2 PCI-X slots, so the floppy controller needs to fit into one of those two slots.

I don't know of a floppy control card that you can buy anymore that plugs into a PCIe or PCI slot, but I did find this with a Google search:

FC5025 USB 5.25" Floppy Controller - Device Side Data

It may or may not work for you. Read the whole page.

Phantom Floppy Drive
So I just updated to 7229 and I noticed that there's a floppy drive showing up now, which is odd since I don't have one installed. I found a few others with this incident, however the only responses I saw were all suggestions that it might be the BIOS. Well I knew that wasn't the issue for me,...

Windows Xbox controller detects as a floppy drive
The controller also detects as a controller and works fine, but it also thinks it's a floppy drive. Which is very odd. Any reason this might happen?
