 Post subject: BIN to IMG

Hey guys, how the heck do you convert your BIN file outputted by DJGPP into a raw image? I'm a dumb beginner, so have mercy :-)

Unless you're talking about a specific kind of image format then
you don't. The "bin" format is a raw binary format.

Do you mean the .IMG files that Bochs uses?
The file created by DSKIMG (or RAWREAD, or DD),
which is a "snapshot" of a floppy disk?

You can use MTOOLS to manipulate files on a
.IMG disk.

I meant a IMG file that I can use rawrite.exe to write to a floppy and boot up with. I want to turn a BIN file created by DJGPP into a IMG file to rawrite to disk. I've heard I can do this with dd in linux, but I'm wondering if there's a DOS program that will do this.

If you could, check out the site:
http://www.acm.uiuc.edu/sigops/roll_you ... world.html
for a tutorial,

and you might just be able to find some tools at
http://www.acm.uiuc.edu/sigops/roll_you ... strap.html
which some of those can turn a binary into SBBB image that
dd(Unix/Linux) or rawrite(DOS) uses (said in the tutorial of which one to use.

Good luck

Ben

Hehe, just in case anyone's wondering, I was trying to make a boot disk. I
figured it out a long time ago. I used 'dsk2img' to convert a boot disk to
an 'img' file to rawrite to a disk. That was back when I was dumb (not that
I'm not still dumb) :-)
