I could be wrong Aaron but ISTR the older Mac's had a variable speed floppy
drive that they used to put more data in the outer tracks by slowing it down.
I recall when I was running an amiga that interchange with a mac wasn't
possible because of that.
But I could be wrong, good luck. Until then, can you setup a serial port and
cable and use something like zmodem to move stuff?
