    Hi All,

    I have a floppy disk, a 2DD Double Density Ms Dos that I know I created on a PC but now none of my computers will recognize it. They say it's not formatted but I have an old term paper on it that I need. I'm sure it's many years old. Any ideas on how I can open it or access it? Thanks,

    Bob

    XP doen't support 720k diskettes. You will need to use an old machine to transfer it to a 1.44m one.
