I'm sure it can, but I can't figure out how.
I put disk image on the Mac, but there seems to be no way to write the image
to the disk.
800K Apple II drives work fine on a Mac.
If I put a blank disk in the drive, there is no option for format it for ProDOS.
If I run DiskDup+, it cannot recognize any of the disk images i have put on
the Mac, which I want to write to the 800K floppies.
Do I need some kind of special software or what?
In particular, is there any Mac software that will write a disk image to a
floppy, and not care about the @#$%@#$% resource fork?
The files are perfectly valid prodos disk images, but the Mac insists they are
just text files.
I used reskit to create a resource fork and make them data, but the programs
like DiskDup+ still don't like them.
DiskCopy is also supposed to be able to save and write Apple II 3.5" images,
but I can't make that work either.
