Otherwise it will be harder - may write on Atari self with SW like Jay MSA - but need somehow to transfer MSA images to Atari ..

But not 800K format, used a lot by Atari. Then can write with Jay MSA on another floppy disk on Atari . Since MSA can be packed, it means that can write many 800K images too. There is a way to split larger files too - but you need to read usage of Jay MSA for it ..
But if you are very unlucky, your USB may support only 1.44 MB floppies - then above will not work.
Try to format floppy with command: format a:/n:9 /t:80 .
