[Coladam] Transferring ADAM tape/disk images to physical media

As I see it, someone would have to write a program (Windows, DOS or Mac OS) to convert the DDP or Disk Image to a WAV file.

  One post that went unanswered at the end of the "easiest way" thread, below, referenced something that I'm also curious about:  With the Apple II, it's possible to play back a WAV of a cassette, into a tape recorder, and then use the tape with the Apple II cassette in/out jacks.  Is it possible (assuming that one drills the necessary holes in the cassette to allow it to sit in a DDP drive) to do the same thing with ADAM DDP images?  That would save me an enormous amount of work-around attempts!

    I posted a bunch of information on AtariAge about transferring programs back and forth between an ADAM and PC. Follow these links for all the message threads and everything that you will need. The Serial transfer method could be used as well, but is a lot more involved in my opinion.

    AtariAge, as well as this list, is a great source for information, just remember to put that Forum Search feature to good use to find items of interest.

      Is it possible to transfer an ADAM tape (or disk) image to physical media?
      How is this done?  I'm familiar with the process on the Apple II, but are
      there transfer programs (similar to ADTPro on the Apple II) and serial
      connectors (similar to the Super Serial Card on the Apple II) available for
      the ADAM?
