Converting DSK to floppy

Postby Hastor » Mon May 12, 2014 10:46 pm

What is the best way to take a DSK image and write an actual floppy from it with the CFA3000? I imagine there must be a way, though it seems I usually can't access virtual disks and real ones at the same time.

I don't know if it's the "best," but a reasonable way would be this:

Have the CFFA3000 set up as a virtual Disk II adapter in (say) slot 5, and a real Disk II adapter in slot 6. Mount the .DSK you want to use in CFFA's slot 5, disk 1. Use any disk copy program (COPYA, Copy II+, etc.) to copy from S5D1 to S6D1.

If you're having trouble figuring out how to configure your system to have both real and virtual disks at the same time, have a look at the setup video here:

you'll want to review the section at 1:40.

I use DiskMaker8 and never had any problems.
