I use a DivMMC Enjoy with mine...

it emulates a 'betadisk' system via SD card... I don't think theres a disk system as standardized as the Amstrad systems though, unforunately, so I'm not sure how it's best to connect a REAL floppy

There was supposed to be an official disc interface for the +2A which would have allowed you to turn the machine into a +3 (+3DOS is present in the +2A ROMs), but I don't believe it was ever actually released - so only the +3 ever had an official disk drive. There were numerous other interfaces, each with their own DOS, which had varying degrees of success (more so in Russia).
