Family Tree maker on 3.5 disks

Hi there. I bought Family Tree maker years ago and it came on 5 3 1/2" discettes. I have been using it and adding to it over the years and it's worked fine.
A few weeks ago i got a new PC and it doesn't have a drive for the 3 1/2 discs.
I have found what look like the data files. One is name.FBK and the other name.FTW but I seem to have lost the actual FTM programme and I can't reload it because of the above problem. I have lloked on the Broderbund site for an update but cannot see one.
Does anyone know how i can run my prgramme again? And if i have to re-buy the programme on CD Rom, will it accept the old files.
i would ask Broderbund but their feedback facility is hopeless.
