Trans64 has a bug with D81 files.... I've had a few emails with Bernhard (the programmer) but as yet we have not resolved all the problems.... Trans64 can be used to transfer /name /copy /work with files on a D81 image, but it can'y be used to create the blank image in the first place.... it gets it wrong... the original BAM is incorrectly set up. To create the blank D81 image I recommend using C1541.EXE bundled with VICE. I personally have a BLANK81.D81 file which I copy to a new name and then add the files I which to transfer to it. Note: you cannot rename the disk in Trans64 because it also stuffs things up unless you take precautions. To transfer the D81 to a real 1581 disk I use 1581COPY by Womo (Wolfgang Moser). This program works great. If you transfer a disk created by Trans64 it will not be readable on a 1581 (the BAM is corrupt). You need to start with a blank created by C1541 or a 1581COPY of a real disk. One note with 1581COPY is that it doesn't accept D81 files with an error block, ie only 819200 byte files work, not the 822400byte files. I've discussed with Womo and he seems happy to consider adding this feature to his next release (its only a one line change) Note also Trans64 has some problems with D71 images. It creates them alright, but if you delete files, those on the second side can't be deleted.... Hope that helps, now does anyone have any info on the disk image format for the new CMD drives FD2000 etc? - Nick > -----Original Message----- > From: Geoffrey D.
