Aside from another N*, the only hardware that I know of that will
read/write N* hard sector disks is a PC with the no longer available
MicroSolutions MatchPoint Card and the appropriate version of their
program UniForm.

I do not know whether the new FDC Catweasel in Amiga or other form has
that capability now or not. But I understand that its PC version is not
capable of writing any foreign formats.
