Import Word Processor Document
Posted on 2002-04-02
I have an interesting request, and it will take an older fogie than myself to solve it.
Our church treasurer has a twelve year old word processor that saves to what appears to be 720k floppy disks (only one hole). These are not standard computer-readable disks, though.
The church has voted to get him a computer and he has about 56 documents that he wants to convert. I told him that it would hopefully be as easy as opening it in Word on the new computer. No go on that one.
Has anybody out there had any experience with reading non-standard disks on a PC? Do I need a special program to read this disk? Do I need a special conversion program to read the files and write out Word docs?
I don't know the exact model of Word Processor but I can get that if it is necessary.
