Actually, for me, the most convenient way to transfer data to and from a
vintage PC is via an RS232 null modem cable. You can connect it to your
modern PC directly - even if you don't have an RS232 port, there are
cheap USB to RS232 converters available, if necessary, while there's no
normal way to attach a 5.25 inch floppy to a modern PC.
