Software allowing IBM to read Mac disks

Post by James P. Gra » Sun, 05 Feb 1995 12:06:48



Does anyone know of a good and preferably cheap program which allows
an IBM type machine running under the DOS/Windows environment to read
Mac formatted floppies?

Thanks,

James,
I use one at work called Mac-n-Dos. it's pretty simple. PC files on left
half of screen, mac files on right. I'm not sure where to get it, though.
You'll have to ask around at your local software retailers.

BTW, have you ever gotten any comments (positive or negative)
about your HUGE signature file? Just curious.

Which is more annoying: his huge signature file, or your invalid

I have been using a program called "Conversions Plus".  It seems to work very
well.  It installs a fictitious extra drive in File Manager, when you click on
your "a" drive it reads PC disks, when I click on my "e" drive it reads mac.  
You can also convert between programs.

I don't remember the cost (work paid for it) but I do know it was not very
expensive.

Try MacSee. It's a shareware program (includes DOS and Windows versions). It's pretty
simple but obviously not too expensive. You'll no doubt find it at a local FTP site.

It's most likely under MACSEE.ZIP (But could have changed).

In any case it's by REEVEsoft. You can contact them at:

Hope it helps,
