Hi guys I am new here and I have a question about .dsk files. I have a MSX Turbo R and I have some .dsk files Is my understanding the .dsk files were disks before become a .dsk and my question is how I can use these files in a Mapper Sd cartridge because I dont know if is possible. Some files has 3 .dsk different files for the same program for example: "example1.dsk, example2.dsk, example3.dsk", all those files belonging at same software. How do I use them to work in the mapper? Is possible put them back in a floppy disk? The .rom files runs fine my problem is just about the .dsk. Question Question Question

You could replace your floppy drive with a gotek drive then put dsk files on usb stick.

There’s also utilities like putdisk and getdisk which do the same.

Reading his question, he's not asking on how to put the files back on a disk, but how to use .dsk files "Mapper SD cartridge" by using for example opfxsd.com.
May Colive201 can tell us exactly which cartridge he is using so we can help him with a bit more precission.

I think the Mapper SD is the same as the 8bits4ever SD-512. In that case, starting disk images directly from SD card relies on the Nextor disk image emulation functionality, or SofaRun’s SofaRunIt.

SofaRunIt is what I use nowadays, and it works pretty well, although some games need minor patches to fix some issues.

+1 for Sofarun. Consider that for use multidisk game you need to concat them in order to use Sofarun.
