As I posted a few days ago, Snaffleupadisk works for unidirectional
transfers of non-copy-protected disk images.  I'd be quite happy for anyone

Marko's CN232 software also works fine under Mac OS X - I can't remember how
much functionality the software has at this point in time, but certainly
loading and saving files to 'tape' works quite happily.
