Default Transferring files to PC question

I am brand new to this forum so if I posted this in the wrong place please forgive me!

I wonder if someone can help me with this. I have been unsuccessful in getting help from Smith Corona. I have the Smith Corona model PWP3600 word processor since about 1993. I have a lot of .PWP files created on the word processor that I would like to transfer onto my new PC. I read in the manual for the word processor that I can save a file as an .ASC and open it up on my PC. I followed the instructions on saving a .PWP file into an .ASC file and tried to open it on my PC but I got a ‘Disc is not formatted’ error. Is there anything I can do? Could this incompatibility be due to how much computers have changed since the early 90’s? Thanks for your help.

Try to format the disc on you pc first and then copy them over that way

Default Thanks for the reply!

Actually, I tried that first. I saved a file from my PC to see if it would be compatible with the word processor but it gave me the same "Disc is not formatted" error. Technically, they're both supposed to be IBM compatible, right?
