Default Help - Floppy drive file recovery

I discovered some floppies (3.5 inch, 1.44 MB) with data that I thought I had copied over to other media but of course I somehow didn't. The files consist of scanned copies of very old family photos in, I am certain .jpg format.

I no longer have a system with a floppy drive. I tried to read the disks at the local public library but the system reports that no data is recoverable.

I can readily obtain a USB-connected external floppy drive. That done, will it work on Win 7, 64 bit?

Assuming that the hardware/OS is a go, what would you recommend as software to attempt file recovery?
Does current file recovery software still recognize a floppy as a source?

Hoping...

Thanks
