Read Atari ST floppy discs on a PC

  kjrider 09:46 28 Oct 2008

I know this is a bit of a long shot, but I have some old Atari ST 3.5" floppy discs with Docs on that I want to recover.

Is there any way I can access them on my PC? I have tried it with Ubuntu, but it doesn't seem to read them.

Any ideas?

You won't be able to read them with a windows PC.

You can sometimes make out what's on an Atari disk though, and with doc files you may be able to extract some bits, but mainly it's a non-runner I'm afraid.
