IIRC the PC disk drive can read ST disks.  It was Amiga disks that
proved problematic.

At worst you'd have to download an ST emulator and create a virtual
Hard disk, then copy the files from there, I think.

I never owned an ST (I was an Amiga fan) but I am 99% sure ST disks
can be read from a PC.
