How I would do it (from a PC):

  • Download any of the DSK files from Gryphel (or create your own with HFVExplorer ).
  • Run SheepShaver with OS9, and select Enable "My Computer" icon so I can browse files on my PC.
  • Mount the blank DSK.
  • Once running OS9, load up the blank DSK with your files.
  • The video shows PlaySound as the application - I don't know that app, but I assume you can find it somewhere (here maybe).

 

Here's a topic on playing music on a compact Mac. I wasn't able to get Mini vMac to run PlaySound - it complained that I don't have a co-processor.

Ironically, I think it's easier to do with a PC. I was hoping some Apple users would chime in - I know Mini vMac and SheepShaver/Basilisk runs on a Mac - I would go that route. Otherwise, you could network the Plus using AppleTalk and transfer files that way - or a Zip/Jazz drive - or a bridge Mac. I think the easiest method is to use the emulators - there's a bit of a learning curve at first, but it's worth the payoff.
