.ST to Real Atari ST disk

Recommended Posts

It's been years since I've put disk images back on real Atari ST disks. Can someone please remind me how to transfer a .ST format disk image back to a real Atari ST disk?

It's best to do it with Atari ST and it's floppy drive - then chances for reliable reading/loading are better than when doing it with some other computer/floppy drive.  But it needs some way to transfer those ST images to Atari. So, some Flash card based storage, for instance. Like UltraSatan.

Other way is to do it with PC. Actually some older PC is what can do it. With USB floppy drive you can not write usual Atari ST 800 KB formats.

So, internal floppy drive in PC.

On page above can DL SW, with which can write ST floppy images onto disks, for Windows and for Atari ST.

Ah, thanks...FLOIMG sounds familiar. I know I've done it before, but couldn't remember what program was used. I already have that one on my PC someplace so I'll give it a try in the morning.

I use JAY MSA archiver v1.08

 

On a real Atari .ST .MSA + other formats to disks and creates images of disks too.

Thanks! I will give a look at that one too. I had not previously heard of that one, although I would have to see it to be 100% sure. It's been a long time since I've done any of this stuff.
