Assuming there are no bad blocks on the floppy

A Catweazel board in a PC will read DEC double density discs as well
although I've not been very impressed with abilities of the data
code on double-density data.

I've had the best results recovering RX02 data using dual-wide
QBus floppy controllers that have a 50 pin interface (Sigma Designs et.
and a Qume DT-8 drive.

I run RT11 on a ZIP drive, read a bunch of images, and sneakernet the
ZIP cart over to a system with E11 to dump the images.
