Hi Crystal,

If you are trying to install an application from the disk, you need to navigate to the setup file.

Under the Start button on the button left, click and select "My Computer". Then select "C:"

The screen shall display a number of files.
If you are looking to install the file, look for a file named "Setup"

You will prompted to input a product key which should have come with the product.

If you are attempting just to use an application there shall be a file with a name and a suffix of .exe.
For example, excel.exe

How are the floppy discs formatted?

What is the metric equivalent of 31/2"

One inch is exactly 0.0254 meters, so 31/2 inches is 15.5 inches which is 0.3937 meters. If you mean 3-and-a-half inches, that's 0.0889 meters.

Floppy goes in but will not seat properly and will not eject

Check to ensure that the slide to the window of the floppy drive. that the disc is read is not damaged. If it is not straight it interferes with the entry window. If it is a 3.5 inch disc, I would recommend you upgrade to a flash(USB) disc. 3.5 discs do not have much space in comparison and are kinda getting outdated.

Locked out computer

Extracting old files from computer discs.

I am not sure if I understand, but in the second statement you said that you have another large computer with large and small disc drives. Can you still open up the 5.25 inch foppy discs, and save it to that computer, and later extract it off using 3 inch floppy?

Floppy disc

Take the floppy disk with the writing on the top side and insert it into your floppy drive (typically it will be your A: / drive).....This will work if it’s a USB or an internal floppy drive.....I hope this helps
