Akai sampler floppy to Windows conversion

Does anyone know if it is possible to get samples off an Akai S01 floppy and into Windows? I no longer have the sampler but have a load of floppies with samples on that I made in the 90's. I would like to get them onto my computer and use them in Kontakt. It probably isn't worth me spending any money on it, but if it's doable I will get a cheap usb floppy drive. I've had a look on google and I can find references to very old conversion software for win 95/98 that doesn't seem to be available any more, or conversion software that costs a fortune.

Splat, Win 10 64bit and all sorts of musical odds and sods collected over the years, but still missing a lot of my old analogue stuff I sold off years ago.

    You could try this: http://mda.smartelectronix.com/akai/
    you probably need to run it on a virtual machine (or an old pc) though.
