Reading Ataris ST disks

Hi all,
I've never had much luck with getting an ST emulator to work on my windows machine... at least not with any of the games I'd like to play.

But I do have one real need, which is to read some of the old disks. I've got programs I wrote years ago on the ST, that are probably on some of these... but I can't access them. I've got a USB 3.5" floppy drive that was able to physically read some of the disks, but of course they are all garbled because of the ST disk format.

So, is there a good driver or something out there that might let me read those old ST disks on a windows or Ubuntu machine?

Thanks

I heard they're FAT like DOS. Is this a little mod they did like Microsoft with the DMF floppies? (When Microsoft found a way to increase the capacity from 1.38 MiB to 1.66 MiB)
