These are headerless sector dumps of the 360KiB disks, and can be written directly to the appropriate floppies. Since you’re using Windows 98, I suspect the best tool to do is ImageDisk. You’ll need to convert the images first: BIN2IMD ATDOS331.360 ATDOS331.IMD DM=5 N=40 SS=512 SM=1-9 /2 (250kbps MFM, 40 cylinders, 512 bytes per sector, sectors mapped ...

In general, identifying a file format by the file extension can be misleading. Many files carry an extension that does not correspond to the actual format of their contents (just for one example, many DOS executables with the extension .COM are actually in the MZ format), while some formats have no single standard extension at all. Raw disk images in ...

The price tag is certainly higher (~100€), but AFAICT you can use a KryoFlux to read everything (even strange low-level software protections): Works with all major 3.5" and 5.25" drives Works well with selected 3" (e.g. Amstrad FDI-1) drives. Also works with 8" (e.g. Shugart 851; might require additional adapter) drives; other types of ...

Instead of the board you suggested or a KryoFlux, maybe build a FluxEngine. You just buy the specified FPGA development board, solder one row of pins from a floppy connector onto it (or, in a pinch, a row of pin header), flash it, and you're done. You'll also need one of those wall-to-Molex power bricks that you see bundled with USB-PATA/SATA adapters, but ...

The firmware on all the 3.5" USB floppy drives of relatively modern make I've looked into seems to present the floppy as a LBA device with exactly 2880 sectors (of 512 bytes) to the host computer. That is the very same thing as an USB thumb drive (and in fact, most OSs seem to see such a thumb drive. You can even partition such a floppy). Replacing the ...
