Old computer broke down. Copied old files onto laptop. A lot of the files were on Microsoft works Cannot load them on laptop on windows 7 my works program is on floppy disks. cannot load floppies on...


Your best bet is to buy a newer version of Microsoft Works of Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office has a free plug in to read Works files.

However, if your goal is to spend no money, you might want to look at some of the free Microsoft Office alternatiove programs that can read Microsoft Works files.

One that can read Works files is LibreOffice at
http://www.libreoffice.org/download/

Or you can use an on-line converter like
https://secure.convert-doc.com/converters/wps-to-odt.html

to convert the WPS files to something else.

I want to convert to usb drive a model pa2669u fdd . are there any converting cables for this? thanks joe shimchick


Thats looks like a proprietary connector, you will not find a cable that will convert that fdd to USB, sorry :|
Anyway I doubt the cable would be much cheaper than a new USB external FDD.
USB FDD on EBAY $10

Reinstalling windows 98 o toshiba 420cdt laptop


You have two choices:
  • Convert your windows 98 cd into many boot floppies. Then install from floppy. There is a utility on the CD (although I can't remember its name. I think it's something like makedisk.exe) that when ran will prompt you for many floppies.
  • You can remove the hard drive drive from the laptop, and insert it into another desktop computer. You'll need a small adapter to do this, like the one found here:
  1. http://www.pccables.com/cgi-bin/orders6.cgi?action=Showitem&partno=00504&rsite=00504
  2. Once you have inserted the drive into another machine, you can now copy the files from the windows 98 cd to the hard drive.
  3. Now re-insert the drive back into the laptop, and boot from the floppy again. Once inside DOS, you can change directory to your windows98 cd files on the hard drive, and simply run setup.exe.
The second method takes a little longer, but will give you many other benefits, including never having to insert the cd to install a windows component again. Let me know how it goes.

Cdr s1000 help


Hi Rick

The unit has stopped reading discs. I suggest taking the lid off and cleaning the laser lens with a cotton bud with a little Windex , then give it a gentle polish to be sure no residue smearing is left. If that does not fix it, check to see what actually happens when you load a disc. Does the transport fully engage and clamp the disc correct into the chucking assembly. Let me know how you got on:)

Data off 486


If you really sure that the floppy is damaged and canot read even a reformated or formated brand new floppy then are only way out of this to get your files is networking (Assuming that the AST 486 does not have USB port or a CD writer)
  1. Use infra-red to network your laptop with another laptop to get your fules sent (Check i am not quite sure if hthis laptop model AST 486 have infrared, if it have a brown small patch on it around its perimeter then hurey it got it)
  2. You can use direct parallel cables to nework your laptio with anyother computer and get your files. please note you will need the parallel network cable and setting up the network (assuming you are using an old OS as well cause XP can configure your network automatically)
  3. If it has USB (which i doubt) the use a flash stick, or CD writer (I doubt again) then just burn a disk, or use an old external hard drive or external CD writer which comminicates throught the serial port.
