iSMI is a droplet that will use Disk Copy to create a self-mounting image from disk images or other files. A self-mounting image is a disk image which can be mounted regardless of whether Disk Copy is installed.

Simply drag the icon of any file or files onto iSMI. You may drag disk images, files or any combination of both onto the droplet at once. A self-mounting image will be generated for each disk image into the directory of the original image.

Architecture: PPC

Requires Mac OS 8.6 or greater and Disk Copy.

gr8. In all the software I've seen over the years, a Scripts folder for "Disk Copy 6.3" (and up) I think has passed through my fingers once but I didn't know why I should have kept it.

The filename for smi files is important to end in ".smi", I say because the Applescript smi builder doesn't name this for us (but can make smi's with checksumming). Without ".smi" then OSX sees the file as an "Application (Classic)" and if u don't use Classic then u think u can't use those files. Only by renaming a smi file with ".smi" ending does OSX suddenly recognize it as an image that can be opened and without needing Classic to open.

The kind of image being created by program "iSMI" is actually a ".dsk" image having Type Code "dimg" (all lowercase). Is this the same image type which users of emulator "mini vmac" say they love? Reminder, this dimg/.dsk image type doesn't do internal checksumming. iSMI builds both a ".img" and ".smi" so this paragraph I mean the .img file is equal to a .dsk file, no? Makes iSMI still useful because I can't find this feature in the Disk Copy UI either.
