I was rambling, but you didn't bother to read my post. There's no way to directly "Why not just copy the disk content to a contemporary medium " in this situation. The fully context-if you'd bothered to read that post-was to use the 1.44s as a bridge medium to get the files onto something more modern(CD/DVD, flash drive, hard drive, cloud, etc). I know you love to blow your top about stuff like this, but sometimes it's a good idea to actually know what the heck you're talking about in the first place before doing that. In this case, you don't.
