Fujiyama wrote:Has anyone here had success in formatting DD floppies in OSX? I've been able to format HD floppies using Disk utility, making them compatible with both platforms, but DD appears to be gone. I heard that it can still be done using the Terminal's command line, but don't know the exact parameters (nothing has worked for me so far).

Gaiyan: I just installed DOSbox and tried it out, but your command only gave me an
illegal command: format
Do I have to use other commands before this to find out which drive letter the floppy disk is and then mount it?

I guess it's similar to Boot Camp but without the need to reboot/partition.
So you just enter format A: /T:80 /N:9, or do you have to find and mount the floppy drive first?
