How to write files to a SCSI2SD

What is the best way to do this?

I had good luck in the past using Basilisk II.  Add the SD card device in the "SCSI devices" tab of the configuration as if it were a disc image.  Basilisk II has access to the host filing system too (if you're running >= 7.5 in the emulator).

One footnote to what’s been said above: I’ve been unable to get Basilisk to mount my sd card directly (in Catalina), but I have had success using dd to image the card, mount and edit the HFS drive in Basilisk, then write that image back onto the card again with dd or balenaEtcher.

I cover how to do that on my blog.  http://www.savagetaylor.com/2018/09/02/setting-up-your-vintage-classic-68k-macintosh-installing-the-full-version-of-system-7-5-5-or-6-0-8/

I didn't know you were on here!  Just wanted to say, that page/your images, have saved me so much time, getting my scsi2sd setup

I followed @Realitystorm's tutorial and I rely on an external scsi2sd to transfer files back and forth into basilisk. I clone my main partition, mount into basilisk II (works fine on my Catalina-powered iMac Pro), add the software I need and then DD it to the sdcard.

Hasn't failed me once! One thing I never managed to do is mount the main partition directly from the SD card into Basilisk II.
