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 download pics from comp to disk


Hi,
  1. Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD recorder.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
  3. In the Burn a Disc dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
    It might take several minutes for the disc to be formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
  4. Open the folder that contains the files you want to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.

    cdb4d559-8825-47a1-8175-79020965d91c.pngYou can copy files to the disc folder by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder As you drag files into the disc folder, they are copied automatically to the disc.
Thanks for using Fixya

How many times a harddisk can be formatted?


hi,

in a long course of use it is quite natural to format the harddisk...

(due to viruses or something like that)

when formatting,
the operating system needs a file system to organise data into files and folders....
so they can be managed effectively...
when formatting it clears a particular area called a partition then divides it into sectors, tracks formed by the combination of these sectors, and cylinders...

sector is the smallest data block in hard disk an operating system can manage...

if not frequent formatting a hard disk not at all a problem....

you need not worry about the hard disk or its performace....

if this one help please give a vote....
