USB floppy drives are still sold. But I'm not sure I'd bother... if they are Adobe fonts they are likely to be Type 1 fonts, and these are being phased out - in a year, no Adobe apps will read them.

You will need a floppy drive, but I would transfer directly to your PC hard disk. But as @Test Screen Name said, Type 1 font support will be phased out soon. Older applications, however, will still be able to access and use Type 1. On a different note, you really should change to Windows 10.
