Convert Amstrad Word Processor Files to PC

Hi, my mum has a load of old Amstrad disks with various files on, in formats Locoscript, Protext & Mini Office Professional. She does not have the actual Amstard anymore.
How can we go about getting these onto a pc?
How can we convert them so they can be read, edited?
Is there any hardware we can buy (ie. floppy drive), so that we don't have to send them to a company to convert?
Regards, Rohan.

I would suggest you search the internet for freeware ,of the same type of program you have on the old Amstrad disc's
they will be:

  • Free
  • better quality
  • up to date
it just would not be worth while trying to find then use an emulator, if in fact there is one available to do what you require,

good luck

How do i convert FAT 32 to NTFS without formatting / Loosing Files in my Hard Disk Drive?


1) Backup your data!
2) XP or later: Open CMD (DOS Window) "Convert" [Drive:] /fs:ntfs

To verify you have the command available, in Cmd window, type "convert /?" that should bring up the various parameters to use with the command. If convert is not available, it will return "unrecognized command".

My phone doesnot read wma format songs


ensure that you have the correct .wma extension when you put them on your phone. Few phones do read .wma. Try turning your .wma files on your computer to .mp3 files with a converter.

Problem with playing movies on my element GC-1020 model mp3 playe


when you put the mini-disk that came with your player into your PC, install the AVIconverter and it will allow you to convert certain video files into the ".avi" format, enabling you to watch videos that would otherwise be unplayable on it. there should be directions for this process in your users manual.

Psion Revo replacement restore


What do you do if you no longer have access to a Psion, but need to access some data from an old Psion backup on your PC? Native Psion files can't be read on a PC, but fortunately, there are some solutions:
  • Use the PsiWin PC connectivity suite to convert the Psion-format files to a format that can be read on the PC.
  • Download and install the Psion ER5 emulator - this gives you a Psion machine on your PC, and will allow you to access your old data on a PC - See our emulator setup page. From the emulator, you may be able to print or export your data to a text file, or use a third -party Psion converter
  • Consider borrowing or buying an old Psion machine, loading the files onto the Psion, then printing the documents or data as a text file
  • Find another friendly Psion user that may be able to convert the file into a format that can be read by a PC for you. If you don't know of another user, try asking for help in our Psion forum
also
Data conversion for the Psion can be quite complicated, due to the file formats used by Psion / Symbian. You should find that the PsiWin program supplied on CD with your Psion machine can help you with most of your conversion needs. If your PC is connected to your Psion, dragging files from "My Psion" to the PC should prompt you to convert to a PC format, otherwise you can convert files that are stored on the PC, using the Psion File Converter. This program is installed with PsiWin and is located in c:\program files\Psion\PsiWin - the application filename is Cpycnv.exe
psiwinconv.jpg For more help on file conversion, see our dedicated conversion page.
Agenda and Contacts databases: Note that these can't be converted using the Psion File Converter - PsiWin supports synchronisation of these files, but not direct conversion. See our suggestions in our Backup FAQ. The most common solution is to load up the files in the Psion Emulator, and either use Print to save the data as a plain text file, or use a Psion-based converter, as detailed on our Conversion page

Watching wmv files on DVd


MPEG-2 video is the file format you’ll need to convert to, but you cannot simply burn the MPEG-2 to a DVD and automatically play it in a DVD player.
The easily way is to buy software that will make the transition smooth; I recommend VSO Convert to DVD.
