Greetings all. I've currently got my c64 linked to my mac via a swiftlink cartridge and a USB to serial adaptor. I have succesfully tranfered a file using Novaterm 9.1's XModem transfer. What I would like to do, is archive about 40 floppys as .d64 images, while writing as little software as I can possibly get away with :-) Has anyone come across a swiftlink compatible tool that will read an entire disk sector by sector and send it as a single via XModem,YModem,Zmodem or Kermit so I can just save the recieved file as a .d64? I know there are tools on the c64 that crunch disk images down into four flat files (can't remember the name of the format) that I could transfer one at a time, but that would require three times as much work, compared to inserting a disk, typing in a filename at the recieving end, and hitting 'send' on the c64. Otherwise I guess I will have to remember how to write disk access routines and get to know the serial routines from the Fridge, and either wrap my head around XModem or write a python script to receive some raw data + a checksum.
