No, the problem is not the operating system. The operating system just exposes a BUG in DiskManager. It's BETA software afterall!

You can indeed say that last version of DiskManager (0.08) was released on 13/02/2000 and that it's probably not adapted for Win2000 / XP.

I know that in some versions of RuMSX (written by the same author), there were serious problems with WinXP that are now resolved Shocked!

If you know something about MSX, you'd be able to work a commandline. So the ancient RDDSK.EXE and WRDSK.EXE should be all you need.

GuyveR800, are these utils available all over the internet? Do they also handle subdirectories? I thought these utils were sectorbased and not suitable for file managing.

And about the problem. It is the Archive bit which should be set in the image to make the image work. And how you do it, that's your 'problem'. Just make sure that the Archive bit IS set when you've copied the files into some Diskimage. Can this be the conclusion? Smile

Yeah, they were (are?) distributed with fMSX.

has a MS-DOS/Windows port.

The archive bit stuff is just a work-around. There's a bug in DskExplorer/manager (whatever it's called ^^;) that makes it only function correctly on a Win9x system. My guess is it will work on WinXP too if the file is located on a FAT partition.

Cheers GuyveR800. And I like the utils. Already using them and they work just fine. No support for subdirectories, but indeed, don't really need them when using emulators. Prefering my real MSX anyway.

Yep, you have the same problem as I have/had. The solution is to set the Archive bit in every file. You can do that in Dskexplorer, I believe. Give the file an 'A'. Should do the job. Still believe it has something to do with WinRar as well.
