Hi.
I have some Teledisk images on 5.25 DS/DD format that I would like to read without having to convert them to physical diskettes.
Is there a way to extract the files from these images ?
What I want is to copy the files to 3.5 floppies.

inakito.

You can only extract the files to a disk, in this case a 5" DS/DD floppy. But from there you can easily copy the files to a 3" floppy. :-)

I have been able to convert the TDx images to RAW images but I cannot find any utility to read these images.
When I do the same thing with 3.5 Teledisk images I can read the files with Winimage. However the same procedure does not work with 5.25 images.

Winimage can only open "normal" DOS formatted disk images. It barfs on anything non-dos or formatted for early DOS 1.x. Also, if you attempt to convert a TD0 file that contains copy protection or anything else not normal, the resulting RAW file might be the wrong size or corrupt if the converter omits sectors.
