USB floppy recovery of vintage disks
Authored by: moldava on Apr 26, '10 08:35:28AM

I've had come across this problem in the past.
The best solution I got is to build an image of the floppy disk in a cheap PC with a floppy drive using rawimage, rawwrite (http://www.chrysocome.net/rawwrite) or another similar program to transfer the content of the mac formated floppy to a file without windows trying to acces the Mac filesystem.
Then, transfer the image files to the Mac and mount them directly in the desktop. If the files uses the .img extension, the Finder will mount them with a double click.
That's it.
