numerous posts around the web suggest that this model is indeed compatible with externally connected 5 1/4" floppy disk drives such as those that were made for commodore 64 computers + early macintosh models,
one such model is the "1541" external floppy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_1541
which connected via the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_bus

the 1540 was the model that preceded it and was intended for the vic-20, not sure if its compatible aswell https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_1540, later models also include: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_1551 and the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_1570 + https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_1571



such external disk drives seem to connect via a cable that visually resembles closely a midi cable and connects via the "Disk" port on the rear of the sp12 itself
