Hi i have been asked by my oap neighbour to help her buy her first PC.We have disscussed what she plans to use it for (internet etc) so no problem there, but she has a Smith Corona PWP3600 word processor and a huge mountain of 3.5 inch diskettes.She tells me each of these disks contain a vast amount of letters etc and the first 6 chapters of a book she started writing 14 years ago. She wants to transfer the content of the disks onto her new PC.Short of printing and scanning each document, i wonder if this ancient technology is compatable with todays machines? or any ideas on what to advise her. thanks guys
Some Smith Corona personal word processors diskettes are computer compatible. These are usually the ones that use the standard 3.5 inch diskette, so perhaps you could try one of the diskettes on your own PC!
