Hi all!

I can't understand Ruud.

I really appreciate SC and all the features it offers, but I have WinXP and
the transfer procedure with SC is painful, to say the least: you must have a
FAT partition available, copy the files you want to transfer to the FAT
partition, stop all the things you were doing in background (sigh!), restart
the pc in dos mode and finally start transferring. If you forget anything or
just realize you want to copy a few more things, you have to restart your
pc, go back to windows and start the same procedure again... Aaargh!

Meanwhile I have started playing with CBM4WIN and I think it kicks ass! I
only transferred 4 or 5 disk images and it worked perfectly. It's quick,
reliable and can be started in a dos box in WinXP. In a word, great! ;-)
I only had troubles transferring single files, but I have to check this

Keep up the good work, it's appreciated!
