I have some floppies which were once used on an Amstrad PCW 8256 and contain some vital info, in Word Processing format (using whatever Word Processor the 8256 used then, I forget what is was).
Is there any way I can read them on a modern PC? I've tried just sticking them in to a floppy drive and reading them using Word or Wordpad etc. but with no luck. Is there any program for the PC that will let me read these floppies (apart from looking for an old 8256 on ebay etc.)?
click here This is the site of a firm that does conversions of locoscript etc. Have only used them for new drive bands for the PCW8256, so have no knowledge of how efficient they are fo conversions. I could never get the emulators to work. In the end I set up the old machine, got it going printed the documemnts I wanted and scanned them into word.
