Nope..

As per webopedia..

FDD = Short for floppy disk drive (FDD), a disk drive that can read and write to floppy disks.

IDE: Abbreviation of either Intelligent Drive Electronics or Integrated Drive Electronics, depending on who you ask. An IDE interface is an interface for mass storage devices, in which the controller is integrated into the disk or CD-ROM drive.
