Hi
I'm testing an floppy disk emulator on my msx ( http://www.ebay.es/itm/3-5-720K-USB-SSD-FLOPPY-DRIVE-EMULATO... ) and it works fine with 720k disk images, but when i use diferent size images i can read files but gives some errors. I resize images one by one (open 360k, copy files into a floder, create 720k disk image, copy files into image...)
Anybody know a program or comand line to resize disk images?

Thanks

I don't know any separate program. But I guess it's possible to write a script in openMSX which does it...

I use winimage for working with these images, it also allows you to create 720k or 360k ones..
If you want I can check if there is a "resize image" feature?

I use DiskImager http://www.lexlechz.at, special developed for MSX .dsk images.
If writing to disk, you can deselect the format option and write a 360Kb Image to a 720Kb formated disk.

I checked for you: WinImage has the option to change the disk format (Image->Change Format)
Could be worth a try for you?

GNU "dd" (or any other dd) probably can do it for you..

Sorry, I just remembered, check out mtools instead, it is probably more convenient.
