Were can I get a shareware MAC to PC file exchange program. My version does not work anymore. I have PC exchange in my system folder but I cannot read DOS disks. I am trying to convert my Quicken files to a PC version of the program.  I have a MAC Performa 405 system. OS is 7.1 (can't install 7.5 on this processor)

I reinstalled the system folder from a back-up and recovered the PC exchange program which had been corrupted. I rebooted my system and it now reads DOS disks.  We were able to transfer files to our PC successfully.  
Thanks for your input.

You should have gone to e-e customer services and posted a question asking if you can have your question deleted and your points returned as you had figured the answer out for yourself.
The good thing is that your solution is now available for others
