How can I add a file to a disk image?

Postby IndyJones1023 » Sat May 07, 2011 10:00 pm

I am trying to setup Ghostlink between an old laptop running a DOS boot CD-ROM and my 1040ST. I have the laptop setup with the PC program, and need to create a disk for the 1040 with the ST version of the program.

All I have been able to get to work is OmniFlop for creating ST disk images on the PC. So, I need to take the Ghostlink program (stmaster.prg) and create an ST image that OmniFlop will write to a floppy, which I can then pop into the 1040 and start to transfer more files more easily.

So, using Steem, I've been able to create a new blank disk image. Now the hard part, how do I get the stmaster.prg file onto the ST disk image in Steem? I can't seem to add files from the PC structure into the virtual ST machine.

Any help would be appreciated!

Once in your STeem Virtual hard drive the Atari files should be visible and usable from Windows Explorer (my computer). You should be able to copy straight to the disk from there.

Fastcopy also produces MSDOS compatible Disks on the Atari ( special format )
Atari STFM 512 / STe 4MB / Mega ST+DSP / Falcon 4MB 16Mhz 68882 - DVD/CDRW/ZIP/DAT - FDI / Jaguar / Lynx 1&2 / 7800 / 2600 / XE 130+SD Card // Sega Dreamcast / Mega2+CD2 // Apple G4

In Steem you can map a folder of your PC hard drive to your C: in Steem (upper right icon "Disk manager" then upper right icon again "HARD DRIVES").

Put any file in that folder on your PC and it will appear under C: in Steem. Then you can drag and drop them to your floppy disk.
