Hey, guys- this is my first post so please forgive me if I've posted in the wrong place but I'm desperate for help!
Here is my situation:
I have an old IBM Thinkpad 385ED running Windows 95. There are files on there that I want to keep and transfer to my new laptop running Windows 10.
Of course the technology has dramatically changed and the 2 computers share no common connection ports. And the ThinkPad has no inter/intranet access.
The Thinkpad has a CD-Rom but cannot write so CD transfer won't work.
The Thinkpad also has a floppy drive which would be great if my new laptop had a floppy drive. Of course it does not. Strike 2.
I have no way to connect both devices to a router to create a LAN. Strike 3.
I have an external hard drive but the only connector it has is a USB which the Thinkpad does not have. So, game over?
Does anyone have advice to help me solve my problem? I'm not especially techno-savvy (I know just enough to be dangerous...) so hoping for a solution that is not too complicated or requires a lot of expense.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
