What kind of floppy image? Is it a Microsoft floppy (usually FAT), or could it be a Apple or Amiga floppy ... or perhaps one of the ISO standard formats for floppies that never made really made it to PCs, but may be de facto standards in special environments, like music industry? Or perhaps a Unix file system floppy -- they're unusual, but they do exist.

First thing is to is always to identify the format. If you don't have the know how to do it, give disktype (sourceforge project) a go, or perhaps even Unix 'file'.

Once you know the format, it's time to look for ways to interpret it.

If you feel sure it's a FAT floppy, and you're using a Windows OS, you may try WinImage or perhaps 7zip (which is a useful tool to unpack all kind of files).
