Hey, I just found (in our shed) an Atari 520ST and an Atari 2600, along with a few extras:

Atari 2600:
- It works, although the power connector is "dicky".
- Has a three button "professional" joystick.
- Activision "Super Hit Pak":
- River Raid
- Grand Prix
- Sky Jinks
- Fishing Derby
- Checkers
- Atari Vanguard
- Atari Midnight Magic
- Atari Footbal (Realsports Socker)
- Double Dragon
- Enduro
- Megamania
- Skiing (WTF at psychedelic cover)

Atari 520ST:
- Appears to be fully working
- Inbuilt floppy drive might need cleaning/repairing
- No hard drive, modem or monitor.
- Atari 1st Word Manual
- Atari ST BASIC Quick Reference
- Atari ST Computer Owners Manual
- Ocean Wrestle Mania + Mint Cond. Manual
- Ocean Shadow Warriors + Mint Cond. Manual
- First Word
- U.K. Language Disk
- Afterburner
- Bombuzal
- Bomb Jack
- Xenon
- Super Hang On
- Star Ray
- Star Goose
- Double Dragon
- Starglider
- Overlander
- Super Huey
- Space Harrier
- Black Lump (I'm like totally enthralled... O_o)
- Outrun
- Predator
- Gauntlet 2
- Eliminator
- Nebulus
- Pac-Mania
- R-Type
- Pitfighter
- Go Moku
- Backgammon
- Robotron
- St Tour
- Music Maker
- Neochrome
- Express Check

So naturally I should explain that I've never owned anything made by or for Atari and I have got no idea about how to use any of this stuff.

I've tried to run a few games, but when I try to access the floppy disk it "whirls" for a moment than tells me the drive is not responding. Should I try to get a head cleaner? Or an external floppy drive? Or am I missing something obvious?

Is there a way I can backup these disks? Are they computer readable (with special software, perhaps)?

And is there anything else I should know/do?
