media question (MO and tape)

My father was emptying his office and broght home a box full of back ups.
I have readers for most, except the following 2 :

Sony 5 1/4 Magneto Optical Disk EDM-1DA1s Rewritable
Maxell HS-8/112 Helical-Scan 8mm Data Cartridge

I've googled around a bit and disovered very little about these medias
beyond the fact the MO disks can contain 600mb.

Question : what drives would be able to read these media? Would they be
easily procurable for cheap?
