 I forgot to mention. If the disk are softsectored and your
PC can handle that format, you can read and write them.
For hard sectored, you'd need some special hardware.
Even for soft sectored, most PC can't read/write single density.
You also can not write a 48tpi disk with a 96tpi drive
and expect them to work on a 48tpi drive. You can
read 48tpi disk on a 96tpi drive though.
 It is unlikely that your XP machine support much of anything
other than double or quad density.
