Hi Simon,

That is EXACTLY what you DO NOT want to do. That conversion will strip off the tags which will make the disks useless if they either Lisa Office System, Lisa Pascal Workshop, or the MacWorks boot diskette.

That is unnecessary. You can make perfectly usable images from any classic Mac, 68K or PPC that has a GCR capable floppy drive (i.e. 400K/800K), IF you use Disk Copy 4.2. I've even made images from a 20th Anniversary Mac running System 9.1, as well as a 7100 running System 7.5. These all have worked on my Lisas.

You don't have to limit yourself to a 68K Mac such as a Mac SE, nor System 7, or an 800K floppy. It might even work from some of the G3 systems that have "superdrive" floppy drives.

You do have to use Disk Copy 4.2 if you want to be absolutely sure that the disk will work on a Lisa.

You *MIGHT* be able to use DART, but it could produce unreliable images.

However, using Disk Copy 6.x will absolutely render Lisa diskettes unusable.
