Thanks, Mike. It is odd that I could not get Disk Copy 6 to mount them. I didn't try to drag to do it, I made the file into a DC6 document using FileTyper as I normally do in such circumstances. However, I am not going to explore further to see why my method did not work in this case.

The English Z-6.0.3 disks are OK, mrdav. They are original DiskMaker 1.3 disk images. DiskMaker is what Apple supplied on their Dev disks before Disk Copy 4.2 was available.

Disk Copy 6 can mount these, just as it can DC 4.2 images, by drag and dropping them onto a Disk Copy 6 application's icon or alias.

The only negative comments I can make about this Toast image is that it's not mountable if you drag it onto a running Mini vMac window, SSW 6 or 7, and it has some odd naming conventions for some of the filenames. One of the disk images in the English folder for SSW 6.0.8.1 got a checksum error but was able to mount OK. Otherwise those I looked at seem to be original unmodified images. I didn't check them all, and none of the Spanish disks I've looked at so far. I only really tested the international English disk images as per your comments below.

I tried to mount the disks for English Z-6.0.3 but with no success (tried Disk Copy 6, Mini vMac even tried Stuffit Exander in case they were compressed files). Can anyone confirm that the files on this custom made Toast image are good and not fubar ?
