LAPLINK still offers a DOS version.
If you can deal with DOS, then the old INTERLNK program could be used. I will not hold hands on this old program, but you can find boot disks on http://www.bootdisk.com and learn about INTERLINK or INTERLNK on google.com
The issue of my support is simple. I guide but don't find it productive to teach DOS. For that, you need to hit the books or the internet. Hope you understand that this is my choice.
In closing, a simple $3.65 adaptor from compgeeks.com could let you put the drive into a desktop and copy the files onto the drive.
Best of luck,
I have an old laptop my mother gave me .The Cd drive in it is bad.I have a Parrell port cable I can use to hook it up to my desktop to transfer files,but I need some software to do it.It has to fit on a floppy disk.can anyone recommend anything to me?(I can't use the windows direct cable connection,because the CAB files aren't on the laptop hard drive.)
