Non-Corrupted Utopia?

The .zip file that contains the disk image for Utopia appears to be corrupt. Every time I unzip it whether it be on a Mac or PC the resulting disk image is corrupt. Futuria works just fine, but Utopia does not. Can someone post a .sit file for it instead of .zip maybe?

The .zip file works well for me without any corruption. This archive contains a MFS image of the disk. So, I have added on the page a StuffIt 1.51 archive in case of...

When I tried unzipping it on my OS 9 Mac it made a .image file that Disk Imager could see but it said the image was corrupted (the name was all messed up) and then the resulting disk wasn't any good.

OS 9/X will likely not be able to do anything with an MFS image. If you have a FloppyEMU or drop the image into an emulator, it may work, but if you are trying to burn a real floppy, you will have to drop down to a system with a built in floppy drive (pre-2000) and use Disk Copy 4.2.

I'm using a G3 Beige tower for this. It works for everything else. Smile

UW. The original image disk file is recognized as a "Terminal" document in Mac OS X & a "SimpleText" document with Mac OS Classic. That's normal, but the final use is to work with an emulator like Mini vMac I presume. For that last one, the file must be dragged & dropped on his window like said before...

Actually I use these on a real compact Mac, not an emulator.
