Windows 7: Floppy Drive Controller Cards (PCI-X)

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:

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

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?
