    From Floppy Disc to CD


    Hello,

    I have many software applications such as Pspice, etc .. which are written on floppy discs. My question is this: Can I copy these software from my floppy discs into CDs because my laptop has no floppy disc drive.
    Thank you for your feedback.

    Regards,

    I would guess both are bootable, but am finding this information for a friend with new laptop with important stuff on desktop. Neither of us being computer savvy like you experts, so any help will be appreciated. I'll ask about burning software and get back. Thanks and hope this is ok

    Floppies? Sounds like very old software.
    Are you sure that it will even run on nowaday's operating systems?
    If the software was written for MS-DOS, you might try to use DOSBox, a DOS emulator.
    And yes, of course you can copy software from a floppy to a CD. Why not?
