Disk Jockey

Disk Jockey Animation A screenshot of Disk Jockey in simple mode

Disk Jockey is an application for macOS and Windows that lets you create disk images that work in devices like BlueSCSI, Floppy Emu and PiSCSI / RaSCSI, as well as in emulators like Basilisk II and Mini vMac.

The macOS version also analyzes images that either contain a single volume, or entire devices. It can show the contents of HFS, MFS and ProDOS partitions. And it can perform a few neat tricks like converting an existing image that works on Basilisk II into an image that works on BlueSCSI or PiSCSI / RaSCSI, or replacing your Lido SCSI driver by a classic driver that will improve performance in modern solutions.

All versions of Disk Jockey are free 🎉, but you can always buy me a coffee if you want:
