For fun, I'm trying to use an Apple PowerBook 5300c (Mac OS 7.5.2) to do some programming. I've found the software I want to use (thanks to some answers on SO) but I'm unfamiliar with these formats (I've always been a PC guy). I've searched for things like "Windows Mac write floppy", but I only really see pages about reading Mac format on PC (not exactly what I need).
My first thought is to buy a USB floppy disk drive and some floppies -- is this what I need to buy? I have no idea what I'm doing really. Did PCs and Macs use the same floppies? Do I need write in Mac format? Should I use maybe
dd or something like that to write
.bin files? Maybe if the Mac can read PC format? I also see some
.sit (Stuffit) files; will the Mac recognise these? How do I use a
.hqx file? Some advice would be very handy.
