I have a tool called MSDOSCOPY that will read from a 1571 or 1581 with a
FAT floppy and allow you to copy files. Obviously it has some LFN issues but
it works fine otherwise. Mine is modified to work with device 11 since my
1581 is not device 9.

There's also Craig Bruce's Little Red Reader which is out on the Net somewhere
and supposedly works well, although I haven't tried it yet.
