If you have an old Pentium (or an older computer) you can use CPDWrite for writing .dsk files, if not, you must extract the files from the .dsk with CPCXfs utility and write them to the disk with the 22disk program (with the last method you can't write protected disks).

Which means a 178k limit? Or can i create an extended DSK file?
You can use both sides of the 3.5" disk, so you can write 180 + 180k = 360k. But if you install on your CPC the ParaDOS rom you can use 720k (the problem is that desoldering the original chip is a pain)
