Hi Chandra,

The real question is once you've decoded the HQX file, what file format are the images in.

They could be wrapped in a MacBinII wrapper which would need to be removed.

They might be Disk Copy 6.x images, or some other third party format.

Either of these will cause problems.

If they're plain Disk Copy 4.2 or DART 1.5.x (just the data fork), LisaEm will be able to open them.

I'd try to get a different set of disk images. There was an earlier post on this list to an ftp site a few days ago from our friend Hex. I suspect that those images would probably be more helpful.
