However, Jeff Vavasour has written several Tandy emulators for PC's,
including a Model 1/3/4 emulator, the CoCo 1/2 and CoCo3 emulators (I have
these... they're wonderful!) and a few others, IIRC. He has utilities that
can be used on a PC to format/read/write these formats on your PC... very
handy for xferring files this way.

I think the port utilties are freeware, but you should contact him to be
sure. I don't have his e-mail handy, but it's not too tough to find on the

And check this page out that I found:

I believe this utility will allow you to read/write a Model 3 floppy, which
you should be able to read in your Mod4.
