If the DSK is 100% filebased you can use Diskmanager...
Affiniate DSK files with Disk Manager so the DSK file will look like a disk... Iirc this goes automated, but I don't remember since it is too long ago since I installed it...
Double click on the DSK file and Disk Manager opens... You can select all or a few files and drag them out of it to your computer... If you still have a disk drive in your computer, you can copy the files to it...
You can not enter/copy sub directories with Disk Manager... Dunno why...

If you have a sector based DSK file (open it with disk manager and if you see nothing, get an error message or the content is a big load o' crap) you better copy the DSK file to a CF/SD cart and transfer the whole DSK like that to your MSX... Then start your MSX in DOS and use Putdisk to exctract the content to a disk in your disk drive... (first extract Putdisk with pmext)

Lot of txt, but it's rather easy...

Or check the FAQ... it's in there at the DSK section.

Thank you,

Putdisk seems to be what I wanted.

Hey all. I thought some of you might like to know that 14 years after starting this topic I finally managed to get the fan translation onto real floppy disks by making use of an Amiga MSX emulator. I documented the whole process here in case anyone is interested.

Hi kaledron, just wanted to point you to the new translation of SD Snatcher that was made in 2014, read more about it in this newspost.

Thank you. I knew about that but for some reason I thought you had to pay for it. This will give me a great excuse to replay the game in the future.

It was originally a paid translation patch, but after several years the team was kind enough to make it freeware. Big smile
