Moving files from a 5.25 floppy to a 3.5 floppy
Posted on 2016-09-10
I would like to move some files from really old 5.25 floppy disks to newer 3.5 floppy disks. I had submitted this question to this form long time ago with no satisfactory resolution resulting. I remember years ago using a card on my motherboard that contained its own BIOS. The floppy ran from that card even though it could not be seen by the computer's actual BIOS. I have an internal dual drive, 13.5 and one 5 1/4, but no way to connect it. My remaining computers are all running Windows 10, 64-bit. Does anybody know if that type of board is still available and whether it would work on a Skylake based computer? I also have an IVY bridge. I realize it's a long shot, but any suggestions on how to do this, even externally, would be appreciated and points awarded. Thanks.
