I need to write one floppy disk to replace a corrupted one. LISALIST
I downloaded a few disk images and tried my usual methods for writing Mac disks on MY LC but they didnt work. I tried my Floppy emu, but that wont work as the MAC has no idea what to do with a LISA disk image.

I just want to replace one disk in my set that is bad. Whats the simplest way to go about this?

(LISA 2 400KB 3.5" disk)
 
Mac Mothership + Disk Copy 4.2 has always been my way to go since the site doesn't use HTTPS, everything's packed in stuffit files (which any mac with a browser should come with) and Disk Copy 4.2 will write the 400K Lisa format.
 
Is mac mothership a site? Among my tools is disk copy 4.2. But none of them will load the LISALIST image files I downloaded.

Actually, Macmothership was the key. Thanks NeXT! ALL the other Lisa disk images I downloaded off the net just would not work with any version of disk copy or stuffit. The one from Mac mothership worked immediately. Thank you.
 
I don't know who runs that site but the sheer number of times it's saved me simply because it has never enforced HTTPS has been amazing. I think most of the images floating around the internet originated form there and have been repeatedly repacked into different formats and archive types.
