Drag and drop the files onto a Pen Drive or onto a CD. Floppies only hold about 1.4MB of data, so you'll get shedloads onto a CD.

Why not simply copy to another floppy?

No disrespect but how long have you had a computer? and what experience do you have?

When you put a floppy disk into a drive, nothing is supposed to happen.

If you put a diskette in, open My Computer - right click on the floppy dive, and choose "Copy Disk" from the menu that opens - then it will guide you through duplicating the diskette to another one.
