Original disc - Floppy drive on PC - What now?

Hello all,

I am a new member, having just joined today.

I have the original copies of 'The Publisher: Kindwords 2.0' (and the fonts discs, etc) and a huge amount of discs which I need to access (I wrote a book using Kindwords, many moons ago) and I have a USB floppy disc drive attached to my PC, allowing me to (at least) insert my old discs.

I have a copy of Amiga Forever Plus Edition.

I cannot, for the life of me, work out how to get the emulator to load up from my floppy drive.

Having looked through various sites and trying to comprehend this issue, am I right in thinking that I cannot use my floppy drive in conjunction with an emulator and get it to load up my discs...?

I would love to just be able to grab an emulator, insert discs and load up my old files, allowing me to read their contents and even to transfer them onto my PC, to use in what way I see fit. Is this at all possible...?

Can you please "dumb-down" your answers/replies: I am 44 and I am fast turning into the technophobe that my parents used to be and I so arrogantly scoffed at. Irony, I know...

Apologies for being so utterly ignorant.

Thanks in advance for your help.
