OK, I replaced the non-working disk image with your supplied archive now.

I'm a little confused, I added this app/page with book pik and disk image to MG many months ago, the pik shown is of my very book. I'm don't understand why my contribution vanished, oh well. Just for completeness I've added a disk image. BTW: Mine is a single floppy image, the floppy in the book is a HD, but that is a copy made by the library that owned the book.
The book describes basics of C programming, it does not at all give details on how to progam a Mac.

@MikeTomTom:
Can you try to convert it to the uncompressed Disk Copy 6 format ? Else we need another image from the original disk.

@Gera:
Do you still own the orignial disk ? Maybe you can make an uncompressed image with Disk Copy 6 from it, as MikeTomTom suggested.

  Have you managed to get it mounted on Mac OS ?

No. Its fubar.

The clue is in its extracted filesize 900+ KB, too big to be a 800K floppy. This indicates that it was a 1.4MB floppy imaged as Disk Copy 6 compressed, instead of read only or read write (which don't compress). Anyway Disk Copy 6 compressed, stores important data in a resource fork and this file has had the resource fork stripped off of it. Its missing and therefore unrecoverable.

I'm assuming Disk Copy 6 compression here, as the archive extracts on OS 9 as a "Graphic Converter" file! - Its clearly not tho, I've looked at its content with HexEdit and the headers and compressed data is all there...

A better replacement will have to be found.

OK, I added the linked disk. But I cannot get it mounted (tried on Mac OS X 10.4.11).
