An odd request...

I beleive that you need a MatchPoint board from MicroSolutions to do that.
It was advertised to be able to read both NorthStar and Apple formatted
disks. I have never tried it with an Apple disk, though. I've never heard
of Zardax, but it's name is reminiscent of either a space invader-type game
or perhaps a laxative <g>.

        I just had a kind of odd request.

        This one's for the Apple gurus on the list: Is it at all possible, through
hardware, software, or 'other,' to read 5.25" floppies written on an Apple
IIe on a PC?

        Taking that one step further: Has anyone heard of the word processing
program 'Zardax,' and if so, do you know if it's possible to convert its
files to a more common format?

        Thanks in advance.
