They aren't optical. They are an older storage format. Infact a very old storage format.

And your friend should of used some common sense before buying a 32MB thumbdrive for $100.. there is nothing you can do.

Default Ahem...

Floppies are not optical, they are magnetic. Like old cassette tapes.
If you're wanting to copy floppies you can install a second floppy drive refered to as a "B" drive. Then just copy "A" to "B". As many times as you want or the drives wear out.

They have CD Burners because you can carry the disk around to work and it is bigger space on the Cd+ They can be used for Car cd player, cd player, pc, walkmen loads of things.

The floppy only is for wordpad and things like that, floppys are made for 2 things these days:
People still use them.
And there easy to put stuff on them.

My friend put Doom 4 on a floppy, and it worked. He said he used a rft format for it. Should I do the same? And he said that if you play it on a floppy, it works better. And he said that the floppy runs faster on PHP settings and with this it runs with DirectX GL. He said that the floppy somehow converts megahertz to gigahertz with the magenetic properties.

Default Enought of this...

I know there is no way no matter how great and wonderful your compression is that you can fit Doom on a floppy. And there is no way a floppy can convert megahertz to gigahertz. Either your friend is pulling your chain or you're trying to pull ours.
