Mac with at least System 7.1 and PC Exchange
If you want to make disk images you need:
Apple ][ with both 3.5" and 5.25" drives
Copy2Plus.image.sit.hqx (48k) (version 7.1)
To convert an image's sector order:
- drag it onto ADFS
- Make sure the disk is selected and chose "Disk->Sector Order and Format..."
- Pick your new sector order, hit "OK"
- Dismount the disk image (select it and press [delete])
voala! look in the finder where your disk image is, it will now have the new format!
To make a new disk image from a floppy:
- run Copy ][+
- format a 3.5 disk ProDOS
- give the image a name. CTP will then copy the 5.25 disk onto an image on the ProDOS 3.5
- bring the 3.5 disk to your mac, stick it in, watch it mount
- drag the CTP image to your hard disk
- now drag that image from your HD onto ADFS
- see above about changing sector order. You want "DOS 3.3" sector order, the most typical order. Alterlately choose "ProDOS" order.
To make a real floppy from an existing disk image:
- drag the image onto ADFS, see above about changing the sector order, it needs to be "Copy II+"
- your disk image will now be called "xxx.img" (xxx is the name of the orig image), this is your Copy ][+ image.
- format a 3.5 disk ProDOS and drag the "xxx.img" onto it
- bring the 3.5 disk to your Apple ][ and stick it in
- run Copy][+
- choose the "xxx.image"
voala! reboot with your new 5.25 floppy!
To mount your ProDOS disk images in the Finder:
- use ADFS to convert the disk to ProDOS sector order (see above on changing order)
- change the type of this new file to 'hdrv' (you can use Flipper)
- drag the image onto "DropDisk" or otherwise mount the image.
- WARNING: If you do this on a later model PowerPC, you should lock the file first. If the Finder writes anything to the disk (and it will the moment you mount it) it will become corrupted. This is due to a bug in PC Exchange introduced with the PowerPC. 68k is fine, you can write to ProDOS disks no problem.
