Need a floppy with stuffit on it

Recommended Posts

Hi, i'm struggeling with this stuff.
I'm able to copy files (.sit, .bin, .img.... ) on a high density formatted floppy hfs disk via my PC under Win10 and macdisk tool.

I need an executable of stuffit v4.0 (for my os6.03 classic mac). But the only image that i found of it is .sit, .img, .bin (compressed with stuffit).

This is the snake that eats his tail.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

If you have the .img, that's a floppy disk image, so you should be able to write it to a floppy disk. Not sure if Macdisk Tool supports writing floppy images to disks, but give the steps on this page a try to use WinImage



From my experience, copying the executables directly between Windows and Mac, not using .img files, doesn't seem to go well because of resource fork stuff.

My guides includes links to hard drive images you can use with basilisk II, these hard drive images have stuffit expander already pre-installed, and you can install any other software you need in Basilisk II as a virtual mac to get yourself setup.  Then transfer what you need to, using basilisk II, via floppy, or some other transfer method.  I list several on my site.  See the bottom of https://www.savagetaylor.com/downloads/downloads-macintosh/
