Reading Collins Dictionary

Hi, I have a fantastic French English dictionary which I bought for a Psion Revo ( also works for Palm OS, PPC, EPOC PDA and Nokia 9210 communicator) which is all outdated and broken. I want to be able to use it on my iLiad.
Does anyone know how to use this information I have on the disc in various file formats(mostly .sis ) and convert it somehow so that I can use it on my iLiad?
Do I need to be a wiz-bang computer programmer? It's so good and I haven't found any other that is so good.

It is going to be easier to buy it again in the MOBI format. MobiPocket offer several Collins dictionaries, including Collins French-English / English-French Dictionary.

Some tools do exist for converting some old dictionary to mobi, but you have to spend some time to learn how to use the tools. IMHO, it's not worth the time to learn and do the conversion, unless the dictionary is not available in any other ways.

Ive been told to buy another one and I have one for my mobile phone Nokia E80 or is it E90 communicator, but its a SlovoEd. It's not as good and for some reason the Collins one that exists in Mobi format is not as good either. so if you can point me in the direction as to what tools are available and I'll see if I can crack it. If it looks too difficult, then I won"t.
Many thanks.

Tools are dependent on the format of your dictionary. You have to find it yourself. Maybe there is no tools for the specific format of your dictionary.
