In some cases, yes, you can use something like Teledisk to make foreign
disk images on the PC. In other cases (most notably Apple floppies) only
the original hardware on the Apple, or very specialized hardware
on the PC, can read/write the disks.

You can read, for example, Apple disks on the Apple and move the image
data over a serial cable to a PC (or your favorite workstation/mini/mainframe).
