I wouldn't recommend burning floppy disks....

For "burning" you mean "writing"? I normally use Disk Manager on PC

And the usual Sofarun on a Carnivore 2 cart.

There's some alternative options available as well: https://www.msx.org/downloads/utilities/disk

Which os, what kind of floppy drive?

Chances are it might just work, but there are both hw and os complications that might get into way. This subject keeps coming up every now and then, you might find some threads with tips via search, if it doesn't work. But please let us know how it goes.....

(Oh and you probably mean ds,dd floppies, thdre is no 2hd floppies, and moreover there is no disk rom for msx which supports >720kb floppies....)

You really want to use hd floppies with full capacity? The dsk images are useless, as they are all at most 720kB, i.e. 2DD.
