I was playing around in Altirra yesterday. I wanted to create a disk image with some Basic games on it that I wrote long ago, and had as .BAS files on my PC hard drive. I made a new .atr disk image, I wrote DOS files to it and then.....I went "hmmmmmm". Is there a way in Altirra to import a file into an .atr? If not is there some other utility out there that can do it???

And while on this topic, what options exist to turn atr files into real Atari disks? 15-20 years ago when I still had dial up service, I spent one weekend uploading files and game disk images to my PC to use with this "awesome new atari emulator thing" (I think it was the "rainbow" emulator). Of course now I have no more dial up, my PCs don't have modems anymore, everything is wifi or Ethernet. But I've downloaded a few atr's for the emulators through the years that I wouldn't mind having on my real 800XL. Any way to do that?

Altirra: Open the "Disk Explorer" dialog: Tools -> Disk Explorer (or from the Disk drives dialog). Select an ATR, then you can drag files in or out of the ATR.
