I haven't found any info on the .FDD layout, but since I have that TOSEC collection, I may try to reverse engineer the file format. Meanwhile, you can use the Mame 0.208 set, which is in .FDI format.
Thanks for the info, didnt know they were in this mame set :)

@pgimeno,
That would be awesome. All your previous tools/scripts always worked like a charm. Many thanks!

After looking more carefully, it turns out they are in several different formats, including d88 itself.

Nevertheless, here's an FDD to D88 converter:

http://www.formauri.es/personal/pgimeno ... fdd2d88.py

Usage: python fdd2d88.py <input file> <output file>

Notes: Don't disable assertions (don't use -O to run). Should run with Python 2 and 3. It's not very flexible with the accepted format, but it should be OK with most files. It's not very thoroughly tested. If there is a problem, please report it to me.
