try using winzip, most older systems where floppy were used tended to use winzip for compressing their files, i know i did.

winzip may support the compression used on the floppy where windowsXP might not, or maybe the floppys were compressed with some other external program, winzip covers most known compression types.

worth a try for nothing, as there is a free trial (or was) of winzip.
