I am trying to write a ST image to a floppy disk on PC. This should work but it does not work for me. If you did this and have time to read this please do so and let me know what am I doing wrong. It is very frustrating and have plenty of disks and disk images but I can't get the process to work!
IBM PC with internal 3.5" disk drive
Windows XP SP 3
Floppy Image installed
Here is the process used:
-format the floppy disk using "format A: /T:80 /N:9"
-run floppy image
- as per instructions on http://atari.8bitchip.info/floimgd.php
-test on Atari
Now I should have a floppy disk with ST program that runs on ST. But I have a floppy disk with files on it that PC can read (see image below) but Atari can't read the disk.
The same process is also shown on YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nzdimt2n34M
and to my frustration author is doing the same thing as I am (on different version of Windows)
Since this didn't worked, I have installed Steem and tested the image file I was using. In Steem the program (Bomber Jack) worked just fine.
Searching on the web I found the notes that when writing floppy disk one must not have any other applications opened (like windows explorer) and I didn't have anything else running.
Now I am not sure what is wrong here. Any pointers, ideas, suggestions are most welcome.
Thank you for your time.
P.S. I did try other options, like using OmniFlop and rawwrite but that is something I want to test later.
