Floppy dilema

  bengo 11:45 14 Mar 2006

I have just got a new laptop with no floppy drive and have a game on 6 floppies which my wife loves to play. I know the game works on XP because its on my old computer that does have a floppy and a CD writer, is it possible to transfer the contents of the floppies to a CD so I can install the game on my new computer.
Thanks in anticipation for any help.

Should not be any problem. I would copy the six floppies to six separate folders and then copy these folders to CD. On the laptop run what is the setup file from the first folder on the cd, and when it asks for the second, and subsequent, discs, there should be an option to point setup to each folder\file in turn.
