cant open works with word

All my documents that I saved to disc while using Microsoft works, I can not
open now, with word. Most of them are trying to open with media player for
some reason, but when word tries, it says file corrupt? Please advise

Never ever read from, write to or print from floppy with Word. This is the
most certain method of ensuring document corruption. Copy to the hard disc
and work on the document from there. This is equally relevant to other
removable media such as CDRW.

Word will only open the latest version of Works wordprocessor files. For the
older ones, you will need the correct filter. The filters are linked from
the downloads page of my web site.

You reference to media player is merely a reference to the file association
in Windows registry for the wps file format. Right click in Explorer and
select open with Word (when you have the filter) then set the dialog to
always open with this application. If you still have Works on your PC,
reinstall it to reset its file association instead.

You need the converter for the version of Works that created the document.
