Converting MAC floppy data to Word on cd

  michaelw 12:20 09 Nov 2010

I've got 5 floppies which have MAC Apple word processed data. I'd like to get them converted to MS Word 2000 onto a cd. Does anyone know the cheapest way to do it. I haven't got a floppy drive. I've been quoted £200 by one company so far.

back in the past I could read mac floppies on my pc and get them into word. Have you not got a friend with a floppy drive to try.

if the files are on Mac 800K floppies you might want to read this.

I've ordered an external usb floppy drive delivered for £12 and I'll take it from there. Thanks.

The floppy drive came today and all the floppies I put in and try and open an error message says

"The disk in drive A is not formatted,do you want to format it now?"

My pc is xp. I've even tried it on my Vista laptop but the same thing.

Next thing to try is a data retrieval program. I'll keep you posted.
