Bought a game on eBay....

  1. that I thought was a CD version of Bandit Kings of Ancient China a couple years back when I first started using eBay, the game, it turned out was on the old floppy 5 1/4 disks, and yes, I know that I could download the game online but I have Windows Vista and it won't run it, so I'm back to square one.
    I have taken good care of the disks since, having them in a relatively dry place.
    I know some things about computers but it is almost completely on the user end of knowledge, all the hardware/software stuff is over my head and I'm not unwilling to admit that.
    This is why I'm here. I haven't a clue if the floppy's are any good other than to say they are in decent looking shape.....
    my question is: besides possibly having to locate & buy an old a: drive 5 1/4, which I'd rather not do.... do any of you guys have one or know anyone that does that perhaps I could send these to you or them and have the info converted on to a CD? Or is that even possible?

    I hope you aren't planning on getting that to run on your Vista machine... :)

    If you are, then you might be able to get it running using an emulator like

    Just a heads up though.
