Hi!
I am new to mac, and have just got four disk images off of the internet. I am trying to copy them to floppy, but diskcopy gives me an ERROR 47 and says that the disk is not acceptable. I have tried many disks but all get this response. What can I do???

These disks are most likely in ShrinkWrap format, a Disk Image format from Aladdin, the makers of StuffIt.  Get a copy of ShrinkWrap from Aladdin's web site: http://www.aladdinsys.com/

ShrinkWrap is functionally similar to DiskCopy, just a slightly different format.

I hope this answers your questions.

There was a problem with DiskCopy 6.3.1 The size of the actual disk and the image thereoff didn't match.
If you're using this version download 6.3.2. from Apple's FTP site.

If you're not using that version: Are you able to mount the disk image on your desktop?
