Opening FLP files

Did your computer fail to open a FLP file? We explain what FLP files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your FLP files.

What is a FLP file?

Files that contain the .flp file extension are disk image files that have been created from a 3.5" floppy disk. These files can be created with the DOS operating system or with older versions of the Windows operating system.

The FLP files can be used as a bootable file or can be used to boot up a guest's operating system on a virtualized platform.

The FruityLoops software application also uses the .flp file extension. This software is used to create music loops and entire songs for play on a user's computer. The FLP files that are used by this program contain references to audio files that are used by the FruityLoops application.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
