I've looked at my copy of Calc Result in the past with a view to copying it -
there is a read error somewhere in one of the tracks ( i think it was 71 ?)
and i've a feeling that
when they made the disk they physically damaged it to make it uncopyable .
So when trying to make  any copys of it the drive will not be able to
reproduce the fault - but after saying that i'd be quite happy to be proved
wrong !
