Does anyone have a version of the wedsk.exe tool that works under Windows 32 or 64 bits? The version referenced in the MSX FAQ seems to be very old and only compatible with 16 bits version of dos/windows.

Jltursan: thanks a lot, this is exactly what I needed.

AxelF: Not sure it would work in this case, I need something that support command lines to add files.

The link jltursan provided doesn't work anymore. Does anybody still have this tool?

I use Alan2k's Floppy Drive Image Tool, version 1.01 on the bottom of the page. It also supports single sided disks in Windows 10.

Thanks for your help but it doesn't seem to do what I want to do.

wrdsk is a command-line tool that can create an empty .dsk-file and store files on it. I found the source code here: http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/src/
After updating the code to make Visual Studio happy I can at least compile a binary, but there are some bugs... It does create a .dsk-file but files are only partially added. I renamed all POSIX file functions to ISO C/C++ conformant names but that's probably not enough.

Does anybody have a version that works on Windows 64-bits? Or some other tool that can do the same thing?

I use https://github.com/openMSX/msxtar on my MacBook, maybe you can compile this for windows?

Oops, I read the filename of that util and I judged too quickly. My bad.

I have added it as a basic tool in the AGD MSX Suite: https://github.com/jltursan/AGD-MSX-Suite/tree/master/Suite%20MSX/tools

Does this version works for you?

Don't worry, it seems like a nice tool for transferring diskimages to real disks!
