At our house, we have two old Macs: a LC 580 running Mac OS 7.5 and a LC 575 running Mac OS 7.5.1. My sister is trying to write floppy disks for these two computers on Basilisk II on a laptop running Windows XP SP3 using a (fully functional) USB Floppy Drive. The issue is getting Basilisk II to functionally run and write these floppy disks and I'm sitting here wondering if this is even going to be worth her effort. So do you think she is going to be able to write these floppies and if she can write them for these computers and, if they can be written, if they will run on these computers.
