PLEASE READ!!!! THANKS!

im installing a new program and i need to select a destination for the program to import the data library but at the same time im supposed to insert a floppydisk to import an other file... turns out its 2008 and no one has a floppy dirve.. the problem is not gettin the files out of the floppy beacuse i have the files on my computer.

im supposed to select 2 data files the data library and the floppy file, but im only given one (1) browse box, if i select the data library destination i get an error "floppy cound not be found" and if i select the floppy i get a "data cant be found"

seems i have to select the data file... and manage to emulate a floppy drive to mount the files on, because the program wont look it up any other way

i tried some VFD application, but it that wont do the job, or i could figure it out... really need some help
thanks in advanced

below i included a screenshot of the installer, (when selecting floppy files )
hope you dont mind i deleted the information on the browse box for privacy
the "Repair DVD" is the data library i mentioned

Ha! That depends on which country your in! :)

I've got only one suggestion. Hope it helps.
Try a USB Floppy drive.
