Good news if you have vintage macintosh. Genius guy invented Floppy Emulator for vintage macintosh (Mac 128/512K, Mac Plus, Mac SE, Mac Classic I/II). I tested it with my Mac Plus, Mac SE and it work flawlessly.
Yeah it is a bit pricey it seems he tests them pretty well before sending them out though since he has been catching about 4% of the boards have a chip that is burning out... apparently due to momentary overvoltage when the Mac powers up or some such. Hopefully he can mitigate that in the next revision.

I just rescued a Mac 512k, and I think I'll end up getting one of these sd adapters, because the damn floppy drive is shot in the system, and hey, we have all the disk images on the FTP for the system. I also rescued a powermac 7500 and a g3 powermac (graphite). I already had a graphite g3, so I'll likely use the newly rescued one as a backup for parts.

With an old Mac 128k waiting to be resurrected, this will be a godsend! Thank you for posting this! I've been looking for a solution to get past the nasty barrier of not being able to properly write to 400k floppies – hopefully this will work out.
