Generating Floppies on a Mac

If you have a Mac with a floppy disk drive and Internet access, the process is easier. All you will need to do is to download the images, expand them with StuffIt, and use Disk Copy to generate the images. If Disk Copy can’t “see” the image files, it is because the “Type” and “Creator” fields of the image files are blank instead of filled with “dImg” and “dCpy,” respectively. This can be fixed by using a utility such as Finder Info and FileType.
