Canon RC 250 analog video still camera

I was going through my Dad's old stuff and I came across this weird camera. It is a "XAP SHOT" RC 250 video still camera. It takes analog pictures and stores them on a 2" video floppy disc, Canon VF 50.
I didn't find any peripherals with this camera, except for 4 discs. Three appear used, and if the labeling is correct, are from significant family events from around 20 years ago. I can't find any way to read these discs, but if the images are still viable, I would love to have them. Can anyone help me out or at least point me in the proper direction

Google got me this:

"It takes decent pictures and outputs to a TV or computer (provided you have video in) through a RCA jack."

So maybe record the images using a recorder that excepts video RCA. Maybe even a VCR or kipro or a computer with an input card.

If you don't have the power cord that comes with it then buy one on eBay. Multiple folks selling this early digital camera.
