Floppy Image with .F35 won't work in VirtualBox

Description

I tried to add a floppy image with an extension of .F35 and virtual box just kept complaining (settings/storage/adding floppy to the floppy controller). So I renamed the .F35 to .IMG and it took it. What's the extensions got to do with it? It should take .F35 files as well.

The extension is used to differentiate between iso and floppy images because they contain just raw data. VBox recognizes .vfd, .dsk, .img and .ima extensions as a floppy image if the size matches.
