Conversion of VMDK virtual disks to DSK format. VMDK to DSK disk converters.

Both .vmdk and .dsk files are used by VMWare for disk images of virtual machines. So maybe there is a direct way using VMware how users can convert VMDK files to DSK format or vice versa.

Some users report that you just simply rename the suffix from vmdk to dsk and it should work in VMWare without any trouble, so perhaps no vmdk to dsk conversion is actually required.
