I have a floppy made on a Mac years ago. I'd like to pull some files from it, but Macs haven't had floppies in forever, so I don't have one. I tried an app called MacOpener, but it didn't seem to work, plus it was pretty old. I even tried sharing the PC's A:\ drive and accessing it remotely from a Mac, but that didn't work either.

Any ideas?

You can use something like MacDrive to read Mac media on PC.

The PC floppy controller is generally not flexible enough to be able to read disks from other computers - a fact which sometimes frustrates the emulation community :)
