    Hi! I have several old floppy images of ancient Mac OS versions, and I would like to make them into bootable floppies that I could use to boot an old Macintosh. I have tried Googling this, but I can't seem to find any clear-cut solution. Is there some app that will allow me to do this? (Preferably a Windows app, since my old HP is the only computer in the house with a floppy drive :rolleyes:)

    Huh? The .dsk extension is for Apple ][ disk image files. Macintosh disk image files used the .img extension. The best way to use those .dsk files is with an Apple ][ emulator. A nice one is Virtual ][.

    I use HFS formatted .dsk files for Mini vMac. According to vMac's SetFType article, if you replace the extension with.dmg, it will mount directly into OS X. After you rename it, you should be able to restore it using an external floppy drive and Disk Utility, restore tab.

    With further thought, you might be able to convert those from .dmg to .iso, copy it to your PC, and restore it to disk.
