I have a folder on my computer whose contents contain a program that originated from a floppy. The Windows computer I am currently running does not have a floppy drive.

Is there a program which can convert the contents of a given folder to a floppy IMG or IMA file? All of the programs that I see require the files to originate from a floppy before it will package them into a IMG file.

This file should not be bootable.

Thank you for your time.

  • of course, there are software for virtual cd drives. I don't know about whether virtual cd drives are writable, I suppose they are, and virtual floppy drives probably are writable. You'll then have an A:\> another option is to get an external usb floppy drive – barlop Oct 6 '12 at 8:51

You can try using Virtaul Floppy Drive.

However, you will need some efforts to install it on Windows 7 SP1 x64.

EDIT: It does not work on x64 machines since the driver is meant only for 32 bit machines.


Use WinImage (32/64-bit versions available, portable version as well, works fine on Win7 and probably Win8 too).

  • The 64-bit download on that site was flagged by Chrome as containing a virus. – Enno Feb 20 '18 at 19:44
