For more information about the Greaseweasle, take a look here Greaseweazle – Flux level floppy disk tool
The tool I used to convert the disk images into a format that the Greaseweazle program understands is called HxCFloppyEmulator.
Writing BBC Micro SSD & DSD disk images
Using SSD disk images from my personal collection, I used the following method to write a SSD or DSD disk image to a 5 1/4 inch floppy disk.
- Convert the SSD or DSD images to the HxC format .hfe with the HxCFloppyEmulator program.
- Write the image to a blank 5 1/4 inch floppy disk using one of the following commands, dependant on what type of disk you are writing
For SSD (single sided image)
gw write --single-sided <FILENAME.HFE>
For DSD (Double sided image)
gw write <FILENAME.HFE>
BBC Micro disks successfully written
As well as DSD and SSD images for games, I have also written disk sets for
- PanOS 1.4 – Disks from mdfs.net – MDFS::Mirror.Archive.Acorn.PanOS
- CP/M – Disks from mdfs.net – MDFS::Mirror.Image.AcornCPM
