    Does the system work for you in DOS? Do the motors run? Is it connected through the parallel port of your DOS computer?

    If the only problem you've got is transferring programs, how were they stored? DOS isn't going to be able to open a file on your thumb drive; those were developed after DOS was defunct. Your best bet to transfer files from another computer would be to burn them to a CD-ROM - DOS should be able to open it and copy it to your C drive. Here's a list of DOS commands, if you don't already have one: https://www.computerhope.com/overview.htm
