I'm not a Mac tech, but I wouldn't see why not. Floppy drives are kinda old school now. You may need a driver for the floppy. Check online and see what you can find. Download and install it.
Or you may have to plug the floppy in, then reboot, to get the Mac to recognize it, especially with a USB port. Some old Windozz machines were like that...maybe your Mac too????
Mac OS is very close to Linux/Unix systems, which have awful support for floppy drives. That's another possibility.
If your windows machine can't read the disk, makes me think the floppy drive is bad or you have corrupted files on the disk. Try a couple known good floppy disks on the Windoz box and see what happens. Or another removable floppy drive. They cost $5 to $10 now.
If you mean photos stored on a 31/2 inch floppy disk and your laptop does not have a 31/2 inch floppy drive, then borrow a cpmputer that has a 31/2 inch floppy drive, copy the photos from these disks to an USB memory stick so you can then copy them to your computer. OR You maybe able to get your friend or computer shop to fransfer photos from your disks to a USB memory stick or burn then to a CD or DVD disc and you can then copy them to your computer.
you might need the specific program that is associated to these photos on your computer ie:adobe,jpeg,wav....... also run the chkdsk utility on these floppy disks
click start control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your floppy drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start or you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive
Right click on the file and click "open with" on the new window select the program you wish to open it with such as "microsoft image viewer" then check the box that says "always use the selected program to open this type of file" then click ok and it should open in the program you selected
You can't remove this cover, if you do it will be damaged permanently. If your laptop have a floppy drive then you can do , if not there is a few ways around it, put the floppy in your desktop floppy drive and copy pictures to my pictures folder and then send them to your email address or place them as documents and do an attachment, but you must be able to insert this 2hd in a (floppy drive) or you can copy this disk to a memory stick!
The issue could be either the floppy drive or the disk. If you have another computer with a floppy drive or know someone that does try using the disk on their drive. If the drive cannot read the disk then the disk is bad. If it ok the external floppy drive could be bad. Keep me posted.
A DVD player may not recognise JPEG, but will recognise MPEG, which is why the DC210 has the Photomovie facility to convert the still photos from JPEG to MPEG, but you can still get to see your still photos on your PC, because they are on the disc.
Here's how you do it.
disc has two folders - VIDEO_TS for videos and Photomovie and DCIM for the
still images. Inside DCIM there is a folder called 101CANON. Open this
folder to see the still images - they all have .jpg file extensions. It may be quicker to copy the 101CANON folder to your PC, and open the copied file on your PC.
Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !

This will insert the photo. You can now resize to fit the page.
