Hi Kevin,  If the 8-inch floppy disks are in standard (IBM) format
they will still be readable providing they have not been ill treated
too badly.  Until around 12 years ago I used these on a small
"multi-computer" which had both 8- and 5.25-inch floppy disk drives.

I don't know of anyone who can do this data recovery now on a
'friendly' basis, but there is a firm called Apex Technology who
can do this professionally.  Visit 
for details.  The service is not listed on their main Apex site

It may be very expensive but they do say give us a ring and ask, 
so it may be worth a try.
