8250 and C64 disks

Hi all,

I have a SFD 1001 (~8250) connected to my PC using a NI IEEE card, and 
I've been reading some old disks with that setup (Thanks for the help 
Nicolas and  Ruud !! )

A have a few disks, which cannot be read though. Probably in 4040 (~C64) 

As far as I know: The high-capacity drives isn't capable of reading the 
lower-capacity disks AFAIK. But on the other hand - with correct SW 
*and* tracks (luckily) positioned so that they overlap tracks on the 
8250-format should make it possible to read them anyway ?!

* Are my assumptions correct?
* Does such a SW exist if possible?

Thanks in advance!
