    • These disks might hold one or two photos at best; they probably won't hold much more though at only 2MB.

    • It's worth noting that today's photos taken can be upwards of 10MB on their own!

    • This one was pretty nasty. Eww.

    • This pad is glued into the casing with some tough adhesive; the manufacturer really didn't want this pad coming out on its own.

    • Aha!

    • The meat n' bones of the floppy disk, the disk itself!

    • Ever wondered why the floppy disk was called the "floppy" disk, even though it was in that hard plastic case? This is why.
