Data transfer: A][ to .dsk files on a modern machine

I'm doing a big pile of this type of conversion right now, even as I type this.

I use a //e with the Compact Flash reader card, transfer/shrink them using ShrinkIt from floppy to a CF card, then detach and re-attach the CF card into PMCIA card into my Mac Powerbook, transfer the files onto the OS 9 desktop, and from there onto the OS 10 desktop.

Fortunately, some nutty Apple programmer still supported the ability to read ProDOS 8 files in OS 9, no such luck in OS X.

If you have a small batch to do, I could do them for you, if you want to ship the disks to me in Los Angeles. Private message me if you are interested.
