    You mean copy the files or write them directly?

    Please don't, if I may suggest. While this is a correct way to do it, you
    will find it vastly, vastly faster to use the "mformat" command to format it
    with a FAT32 file system, then use the "mcopy" command to duplicate files to
    or from it.

    A "real" file system, mounted, has all sorts of interesting and normally
    useful behavior that is wasted overhead for writing to a floppy. The
    commands from "mtools" are flexible, robust, and just amazingly faster,
    leaving the floppy in a Mickey$oft compatible format that just about any
    modern OS can read.
