Question about IBM ThinkPad 600E 2645 Notebook
1. Your not converting from Win98 to XP.
2. You ARE converting from one application to another.
The extension of the old file would be very useful. Or better what application was the file typed in?
You had to use windows 98 and some application like Word or Excel.
It being that old, may have been wordperfect, wordstar or even lotus 123.
Heck it could have been notepad.
The good news, M$ word and Excel have a rather large conversion success on older formats. Be warned the conversion is not always pretty or exactly like the original.
Open it with the XP appropriate application.
Word document "Resume.doc"
Excel Spreadsheet "Resume.xls"
Power point "Resume.ppt"
Word processor or simple text program try M$ Word
Spreadsheet type program try Excel
Drawing or chart type program try Powerpoint
GUESS! sometimes you get lucky. :)
Oh and turn the file extensions on.
Some madman at M$ decided it was not good to show these extensions and only that lowly icon file. Now the lemmings don't know WHERE the files goes or what the extension is. Two very valuable bits of information.
IF your asking how to get the file off the disk.
You'll need a 3.5 disk drive and that (1.4 meg disk or 720K disk) which ever it may be. Copy to a memory stick, CD or network drive if you have one available. If you only have the Floppy disk. You may be able to snag an old 3.5 disk drive from a local repair shop. Probably have a lot of them they wish to get rid of. Memory sticks are slowly driving them to extinction. The 3.5 disk drive is very easy to install.
