My old DOS 6.22 disk 1 is suddenly not readable. And do I have a copy of it ????? NO !

I have downloaded a DOS 6.22 from the Net. but it comes in 3 .img files.
How can i make a new set of DOS disks from these files, do I need some expanding software ?

Hope some of you can help

Hello, perhaps this

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMG_(file_format)

can help you.

Each .img file is a image of the one of the disks of the MS-DOS 6.22 floppy set.

Regards

under Linuy you can use the "dd" command to copy the image to the raw device

something like

$ dd if=boot.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=1440

should do it where

if = input file -> your dos images
of = output file -> your floppy drive, standard is /dev/fd0
bs = number of bytes -> length of your image file

I do not know, whether there is an equivalent for Winbased machines.

For more information google for "man dd"

Cheers, Bernhard

I'm using RawWrite to write .img (IMaGe file - something like .iso )

Thanks to you Marcin Dancing

This is a very easy way to make the disks, and it can be done in Win 7.
Thanks to you, an old IBM is comming to life again, right in this moment

You can type in DOS alone by using "edit", and "save as".
If possible try to get a copy of "MS DOS 6.22 with enhanced tools".
Same size, works even better.

Or, a Dr. Dos 6 <I think> works better than the standard MS-Dos 6.22

Some extra apps, than the 622, AND, a better form of DOSSHELL,
