"If such a file transfer can be done with floppies, it should be possible with images just the same."
Sorry for bumping an old thread, but it looks like ajvajra never figured out what 24bit meant, so just in case someone else will runs into the problem and reads this and doesn't understand again in the future, what this means step by step:
1. First, create an empty dos format disk image that will work with basilisk (a 'raw' disk image, without any headers, compression, encryption, etc.)
Actually, since you're going to need Basilisk set up with PC exchange to read the disk later anyway, you can use it to create the disk image too; that way you don't have to worry if you have right kind of disk image to work with basilisk:
i) run the basilisk gui
ii) Create a volume, choose the size, and give it a filename to save it as. Now you have a big blank file, and it's added to your basilisk config
iii) start basilisk. When the mac boots and finds the blank disk, the finder won't recognize the format and it will ask you if you want to initialize (format) it. Do that, give it a name, and from the Format pulldown, choose "DOS". Once it's done, the Mac will finish starting up, and you'll see the PC disk on your desktop along with your other disks.
iv) shut down again.
2. Back in windows, copy the files onto your disk image
There isn't anything built into windows for working with raw disk images, but we won't let that stop us. =)
i) Download and install WinImage (shareware) http://www.winimage.com/download.htm
ii) Run WinImage, and open your dos disk image in it
(File -> Open, choose 'All Files', from the 'Files of type' pulldown, browse to and choose your disk image file)
iii) Delete any existing contents from the disk image
(select any files that appear in the winimage window, click delete, and accept the confirmation prompt)
iv) Copy your archived files originally from the dos floppies into the image
(drag them from any file window into the winimage window and accept the prompt)
v) Close winimage
3. Load up basilisk with your disk image attached, and it should now have your mac files on it with resource forks intact. Assuming you've got the other key ingredient, having an app on there that can open that file type, you can now double click and watch the magic.
