How do I convert floppy disk software so I can install it on a PC with no floppy disk? Software only recognizes 3.5 floppy, 1.44 MB.

    Why not try to copy your floppy to a CD?

    There is another way as well. What you can do is copy the files of the Floppy Drive on some other PC (that has the Floppy Drive) and then transfer them to your computer.

    Afterwards, you can use a tool like Virtual Floppy Drive to emulate the Floppy Drive on your computer.

      Oh and it works only Windows 32-bit operating systems.

    By yourself an "External Floppy Drive"

    Here's an example on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com.au/IBM-External-USB-Floppy-Drive-FRU-P-N-05K9283-/150418206358. Look around for better deals.
