Data recovery on Toshiba T3100 laptop

A good MS-DOS program to use to transfer files off an old computer is Xport
(search on Google for XPORT21). It includes a procedure to send itself over
a serial line to the target computer, so you don't need to have a working
floppy. It also includes instructions on wiring the cable.

Voltages aside, the technologies are completely different; it won't work. I
would follow the "boot-a-floppy-and-transfer-via-kermit" method. Or use a
DOS-based program like FastLynx or even the built-in transfer in DOS 6.x's
intersvr/interlnk programs.
