Firstly apologies for mixing up the category/OS etc. This was the easiest thing to do, to post.
I have some old floopy discs with document files formatted to the Sharp PA-W1200 standard. Foolishly, as I have done with other files saved in other formats I thought I could plug my USB floppy drive into my laptop operating Vista and extract and move to my hard drive and hey presto.
However on inserting the floppy disk my PC reads that the disks need to be formatted. Not a format that the computer understands.
I know there are files on the discs and opened them in the pre-historic word processor.
I have also tried to save the files in the ASCII and Word Perfect file options that the word processor allows but also to no avail.
Is there are work around or should I be considering using these 6 disc as table top coasters.
Any help would be apprciated. Many thanks.
