I've been looking at these emulators too.. Would make an excellent 'B' or replacement A drive.

I'm betting the reason it MAY not have worked. Is the Ataris drive is wired to DS0 (Drive Select)
Given 99.99999% of PC drives are wired to DS1, I reckon these default there too. Unless there is a jumper...then;
The 'cable mod' to the Atari floppy cable where we connect pin 10 (DS0) from the motherboard, to pin 12 (DS1)of the floppy (Which enables hardwired DS1 PC drives to work) Would also apply here.
Then the ST would 'see' it.

I have made a pinout for the Blitter chip. (Since Googling for a datasheet is getting no result)
