Quite simple: I fear that I could miss something by blocking the IRQ. 
Although I spent hours and hours with the DOS and therefore know it quite 
well, I also ran into to many nasty suprises and simply fear to run just 
into another one. It could be that you or another CBM-Hacker would know of 
something important that I should take care of when disabling the IRQ.

I think the problem solved itself: a D64 isn't able to store the order of 
sectors. So even if I read the sectors in the right order, I never could 
restore the original disk. The copy protection will immediately see that 
the hardware sectors are in the wrong order.
