Hi, My dad has an ancient Power Mac 7100/66, and after 19 years he is ready to make an upgrade. He also wants to transfer his Claris Works 2.1v3 files to his new computer (once he gets it).
So far we have tried putting the files on a floppy disk and using a USB floppy drive plugged in to my mom's iMac, but the file format was not recognized, and we were only given the option of formatting the disk.
I have read this thread
but we haven't been able to find the AAUI cable. We could get one online but I want to make sure that is the best route to go before trying it. They suggest using AppleTalk, but it appears that has been phased out as of OS X v10.6.
Another idea I have is to get one of these
and just plug the old hard drive into it.
Does anyone know what disk format the old Power Macs use? And what is the best way to transfer files from a format of that type to a modern computer?
Does anyone know if Apple Works can open these old Claris Works files?
Open to any suggestions! Thanks!
