Issuing a @CPn where the value for 'n' is extracted from the system partition (offsets $e2 & $e3)pointing to the default partition value is sufficient for a FD-2000 disk image to be properly logged in. > Now, what about the 800k FD-2000 disk format.

Maybe it should be called the D1M format? :) Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that 1581COPY supports that kind of format. The system partition is still on track 81. If you really want to boggle your mind and muck up your cross-platform project endeavors, the FD-2000 can format an ordinary 1581 disk and add the system partition onto track 81! The 1581COPY program probably would not detect this 81st partition on an ordinary 1581 disk. Enjoy. -Todd Elliott Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
