I know what you meant - what I was trying to say is that even if you had software that could read the format of the disks, I'm not sure that you could find the hardware to spin them properly. Modern floppy drives (and even those from years past) usually read data at a consistent spindle speed. What I was getting at is that I believe even the older Macs could format/read/write MS-DOS disks. If you can find an old Mac to read the disk, you could potentially copy the data from the Mac disks over to its hard drive, then copy them back to an MS-DOS formatted floppy.

Maybe I'm making this more complicated than it should be. There must be a way to read those disks.
