Unless I am corrected, It still sorta falls under the lines of Warez.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong as I'd be willing to try any disk images of said disks. ;)

How can I make disk image within windows? Transmac not read this fd' s, (320k). Usage with my mac SE works very well…. I have also received the original manual MS FORTRAN 2.2 for MACITOSH!. I have edited and compiled and linked FORTRAN programs!!..

The only think I have ever tried for making images of mac floppies was a program called Disk Copy. It usually floats around the net but I can easily find it on the MacOS 8 disc and it should work with older versions of MacOS.

Are these perhaps the old 400K/800K GCR floppies of the old Macs? If so, the only PC tools that I know of that will make image files or copies are the CopyIIPC Deluxe Option Board or the Catweasel disk controller.

Both are special pieces of PC hardware. Can some of the older Powermacs read both the GCR and PC diskettes? I seem to remember that it's possible...

Any Mac with an internal floppy (beige G3 was the last one) can read 400k/800k disks, but the manual-inject drives tend to be less reliable at it than the auto-inject ones.
