Creating images quirks

Hallo allemaal,

I'm busy creating images, both using the ZF and my CBM-HD PC. I ran 
into some quirks:

- For those who are familiar with Silicon Office on CBM:
I have a Dutch version of Silicon Office with two floppies, IMHO 
just copies of each other. When creating my program I have troubles 
reading tracks 2 and 3, on BOTH disks. I don't know about other 
tracks because I stopped the proces. Reading the directory is no 
Could I have run into a protection or whatever?

- TCL Pascal development:
I have two complete manuals including a ROM and a floppy. Both 
floppies cannot be read by the 1001. I can read the directory with 
the 1571. But creating the image goes wrong starting from track 1. I 
thought that all the disks of the x040 series could be read by a 
1541 (and thus 1571) but that went wrong for both disks. I even went 
so far by using a real 1541 but that was even worse:
 - reading the directory took ages compared to the 1571
 - reading errors starting from track 1
 - after every error the 1541 bumped the head. After track 2 I quit 
the operation.
Any idea what is going on?

- Locom-B and Aladin (IMHO two Dutch office programs)
The original disks could be read without any problem. Both had some 
program update disk labeled like "Updates-1", "Updates-2" etc. of 
the same brand of disks as the original ones. None of these could be 
read by neither the 1001 nor the 1571. The weird thing: only these 
update disks, others were fine. 
I mention this because I could be overlooking something

And FYI: I don't have a 2040, 3040 or 4040.


Kind regards / Met vriendelijke groet, Ruud Baltissen
