    Default need some help creating disk images for compact mac systems

    So From what I have read Ciderpress is primarily an Apple II utility. I was a few compact MAC's and A Floppy EMU adapter. I would like to know the easiest way to create disk images on my windows machine to add to my floppy emu.
    The floppy emu primarily uses .Image and .Dsk file formats for the compact mac systems.

    Anyway I recently purchased a totalsystems cpu/ram upgrade board for my Macintosh SE and I downloaded the driver file, how can I create it to a disk image my mac can recognize?

    Do you have an Amiga? Amigas natively read and write Mac (and PC) disks.

    ID have thought creating mac disk images would be pretty easy at this point? Am I barking up the wrong tree?

    Even the 400 and 800K ones? I didn't realize that!

    I'm not sure what the original question is asking. Are we talking about creating IMG/DSK files or writing to actual floppy disks?

    Does the Mac have an 800k or 1.44mb drive?

    Any real or USB 1.44mb floppy drives can write Mac 1.44mb disk images via Winimage.

    The only currently produced solution that I know of that can write Mac 800k disks is the Kryoflux (Although that uses some external tools described here: https://forum.kryoflux.com/viewtopic.php?t=1090 )

    I use the Deluxe Option Board, myself--or a real Mac.

    Although, it shouldn't be very hard using even a lowly Arduino, Here's one handling Amiga floppies

    All I am looking to do is create the image/dsk files from my windows PC. I have a floppy EMU so I DON'T need to write actual disks.
