    You may locate it easier and cheaper to get an old 1.2 meg drive at a computer salvage/surplus accumulate and install it into a desktop computer system really a pretty easy process if there is a 5.25 bay obtainable you can also take away the CD drive for the period of the project and use to build certain you get the ribbon cable with the drive. Some information that may share to your procedure. Disks that elderly may previously have troubles if there are read troubles, put the disks in a conserved zip lock bag and put the container into the stop overnight then take each one out independently and attempt it in the drive. You must be confident that the disks are 1.2 meg? If not, keep in mind at the opening of the computer rebellion that there were a number of different operating system around and that floppies from one system were not readable by another operating system for example, almost every different cp/m mfg used a different disk format, and apple used a drive design that was incompatible with any non apple computer.
