To convert IBM DisplayWrite documents to modern applications or file types such as Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, HTML, XML, etc., use FileMerlin™ file conversion software.
To convert from other file formats to IBM DisplayWrite, use WordPort™ software.
If you have only a few files to convert and do not wish to purchase conversion software, use our Instant Online Conversion Service.
IBM DisplayWrite is not the same as IBM Displaywriter. The former was PC-based software, whose documents can be converted by FileMerlin™ or WordPort™. The latter was dedicated word processing hardware which used 8" floppy disks. To convert 8" Displaywriter disks, please visit our Media Conversion website.
