i have several 3 inch discs belonging to my late husband on which he had written several short stories. How do I get the data off of these if it still exists after all this time. (20 years !!)

thanks

Do you still have the old drives and the amstrad to play the disks on?

The Amstrad drive fits onto a Floppy disk drive cable an amstrad emulator http://www.sean.co.uk/books/amstrad/emulator.shtm will allow you to read the disk

Probably quite expensive, but there is a telephone number to make enquiries. Good luck.
