Some of the files on the FTP seem to be in that obscure format. Not to be confused with .img, which I already tried renaming my files to. It's been puzzling me for a while, to tell the truth... :^)

Anything checked :P
The .IMAGE file format identifies Apple disk images.

If the size is 1.44MB, it's a Flat Floppy Disk Image, formatted with HFS. :wink:

Really it could be many things...

Try the DAEMON Tools...

1. If it is a Windows image then try open it in a ZIP program...

2. If it is Apple then run it through HFV explorer

3. If all else fails (For example on the Rhapsody Images) then use Alchohol to burn and open on an operating system that supports the file format (AKA Ubuntu or A/UX)

Could also be a WinImage floppy, I've run in to the odd .image file that refused to open in anything else.

I remember the .IMAGE file from OPENSTEP. It's in a format that OS X doesn't seem to be able to read. If I remember correctly, I successfully burned it with Nero, but wasn't able to find an application to read inside the file.

If its small you could rapidshare it (or give us the name) and we could figure out how to open it...

They're actually files on the FTP - namely "OPENSTEP 4.2" and "Rhapsody BootImages". There doesn't seem to be another Rhapsody-related file, no matter what the FTP file lister says. In any case, thanks for the help, anyway.

Just try to rawrite the file onto a floppy (if the rhapsody boot floppies are for x86). You can even mount them in VPC/VMWare and make them boot.

I thought VPC used .vfd files, anyway...
