Hi
1- You need a utility such as macdisk to read MAC floppy and convert the file system to a file system known by windows.
(a free trial version which could copy only a full 1.44 3.5" disk (approx 13.8) data could be down loaded from either site below)
http://www.macdisk.com
Mirror Site
http://www.duhem.com/

2 -you need to have office installed and the folder:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\TEXTCONV
which contain conversion files to help you to convert most of MAC file to PC format.

*** note: if you could save any file in text then it is easy to use macdisk to copy it to pc then use word to convert it to pc format.
I hope this help you if you Nedd more help pls send me amsg

good luck

Mohamed

If this is more than just a one-time problem, I recommend using DataViz, a great Mac-to-PC file conversion tool. http://www.dataviz.com/ Also, next time just save the Mac files on a PC-formatted disk and Word 97 or Word 2000 will easily open them ona PC
