I have a load of 3.5" floppy disk I want copy a load of old data, with
no PC with a floopy drive. So looking at getting a 3.5" usb floppy
drive. When looking at one is there any special to look for, they all
say windows and Mac OS compatible but no mention of Linux, will they
just plug and play on linux? Currently running Mint

Should have no problem. My USB DVD drive just works (Mageia) and I had no problems with a floppy drive, though that was long ago (sorry, I no longer have it).
