I got this working just last night.

I opened up a command window in Windows, navigated to the folder where rawrite was unzipped to (I also put the disk images in there) and just ran it from the command line. When it asks for the disk image to write, I entered the full disk image filename (without path) but it spits that out. The solution I found is to rename the disk image to something short (i.e. 8 characters or less) and tell rawrite to use that.

It says that it's written them properly but I couldn't verify the disks on my machine.

It's a DOS program. What did you expect? 255 character support in Filenames?

I was not using dos for long time and I forgot what the DOS limitations are ... anyway why Apple put long names of these floppies like
"4.2_Driver_Disk.floppyimage" if it doesn't work under DOS? They didn't even alert you about this ... and I was working under Windows 2000 DOS Prompt command where the long names are possible

How do you make disk images?

As a Mac user I use Apple's DiskCopy utility to backup the floppies and use them on vMac emulator etc ... how do I make a backup of Windows and Next diskettes?

On Next machine I can use "dd" right? Can anybody write the line what to type in Next machine to make a disk image from real floppy?

And for windows floppies? I got Windows 286/2.1 that I wan to try on VPC ... thanks in advance for help and sorry for silly questions Embarassed Laughing

I ran into this problem too and solved it finally.My problem is I didn't format the disk at first.So, maybe you can try to format the disk first and do the image writing.Hope helpful.
