I have a similar problem - a floppy full of old Mac files from 1995 that I would really like to get onto my G5, but of course, it doesn't have a floppy drive, and my PC won't read the format.
Perhaps the solution to both problems (and the reason I bring this up) is to find an external USB floppy drive that works with Macs, place your files onto a floppy (the LCIII has a floppy drive as I recall) and read it with the new drive.
Would any readers be familiar with an external floppy drive that is supported by Macs? What file format did Mac OS use? Can Mac OS X still read it?
But what about Mac OS formatted floppies? I don't know what format they used, but I know that it was not FAT (MS-DOS format). Does anyone know of a USB floppy drive that will read these things?
Does the LCIII still have Word in it? If so, can Word save a file as plain text?I have an old LCIII with several large word files I would like to transfer to a G5. (Actually the ultimate goal is to get them to a PC, but I figured that could be done via Email.) Anyone have an idea?
