Yes and no, you'll need a 9825B with the 98228A 9895/9885 Flexible Disc ROM an 98034A/B HP-IB Interface and of cause a HP 9895A Disc drive ;)
And there will be a problem if there is a binary file on the tape, at the moment it is impossible to copy them, the 9825 is missing the tools to copy them. 
As far as I know an emulator isn't available (yet ?).
For which instrument do you have the tapes, I've some disc's for the HP 8566B and 68B SA's for RMB systems (HP 9000/200-300 Rocky Mountain Basic).
For some other equipment I should also have some files.
