Do you mean the old "Diskette", which is about 3.25 inches wide and has a hard plastic shell? I have a diskette reader that uses a USB port, so I know they exist. You could try to find someone in your area who has one. Someone like Kinko's might; them or the lab at the local junior college.

You should have more than one file; FOW makes about 20 for each data base. What error message do you get?

I have a Windows 98 machine with FOW 6 on it. If you'd like to send me the data from the flash drive as an attachment I will see what I can do. My e-mail as of today (6 Mar 2010) is (I don't plan on changing it, but these messages stay around for many years.)

I'd be happy to try to read the "2.5 disk" for you, if it is really a "3.25 diskette", but if it is your only copy, you don't want to send it to a complete stranger through the mail. Write to me.
