Why does this tool create a DSK image that is unreadible with DSK Manager, and will not work in OpenMSX. If I use COPY360 or COPY720 I get a DSK file that does work. What am I doing wrong?

This is for making dumps of copy-protected disks so it contains some low level data which is not a regular floppy disk sectors data. So COPY360/COPY720 is the right tool for what you want

I thought DSK Pro could also do regular disks?

@Manuel dunno, never used it, as i never had any protected disk in my hands... maybe it can, with some command line option, not sure

AFAIK, DSKPRO can do regular disks. I was able to record some DSK to disks with it some years ago. Never did the other way around, though.

DSKPRO will read/write DSK from/to floppy disk. It will also read/write DMK from/to floppy disk.

DSK can be used for unprotected disks only. DMK must be used for protected disks, but can be used for unprotected disks as well (although that gives no added value).
