PB 5300c file transfer

Hello, I have a PowerBook 5300c. How can I transfer files to it, from a PC? It uses 800K floppies, so that won't work, It does have a serial port, and an infrared port. Would eather of those work?

Also, is there a C compiler and Gui library for the PB 5300c?

And...would it be possible to play Mp3s on it?

Thanks,
Mark T. B.

also as far as mp3s

also as far as mp3s

if seen it done, and done it myself

but....its choppy. i mean if you max out the ram or whatever, you may be able to get by

but there are faster cheaper machines out there if you wanna play mp3s.
but yes it CAN do it...i just dont know if it can do it well

if you are going to do it. i think you need to get 8.5 on it, or 9 but 9 will be incredibly slow (ive done it), then find a really old version of itunes

i have had a 5300 playing mp3

i have had a 5300 playing mp3's before with system 7.6 or so. i just cant remember the name of the program. it was very unstable at best but it played smooth. i want to say the name started with "z" but i just cant remember.

edit: wow i was way off. this link: http://www.download.com/Cabrio/3000-2199_4-10056834.html?tag=lst-1&cdlPid=10157787

im pretty sure thats the program i used to use.

mods wanna make that a link for me? thnx
