If I understand correctly, I would first need to get my hand on a 5.25" drive, connect it into the "Floppy disk drive connector" (see http://www.kryoflux.com/kf_features.jpg
) to read the Atari floppy and connect a USB cable into the "USB B Connector" to link that to the PC? That board alone is not cheap though. $128 CAD... ouch. Too expensive for something I need to do once. Once my important floppies are transferred, I will throw them in the garbage and this board will become useless. Interesting option, but too expensive.
If I can use a direct modem-to-modem connection, it would be a free solution. Slow, but free!
