Conversion Program?

Postby wperko » May 23rd, 2023, 10:42 pm


We need a tool to convert a .DSK file into a .BIN file and also be able to convert a .BIN file into a .DSK file.

Copying programs with PC utilities works, but a simple little Windows program to load in one format and export to the other format would be really nice.

Not sure what you’re asking for. A .DSK file is already a binary file. A .BIN file has no specific content other than in the custom context in which it might be used.
