Just correcting...

"since DSKPRO has many limitations..."

Actually DSK-PRO 11.1 and its PDI format has very few limitations...
It works perfectly for the majority of protections. In Brazil, it copies all protected disks.

Besides, DSKPRO is (as far as I know) the only program that can write a disk image that contains a copy protection back to a really floppy disk. Yes, it won't work for all copy protected disks... that's due to limitations of the WD2793 itself. You'll need an Amiga or so to do that Smile

And remember, DMK Creator works (or will work) for all protected disks for the purpose of creating DMK disk images.

Hello, please look at my MSX SOFTWARE PRESERVATION PAGE.

Look for file NEMESIS1.ZIP

It has 3 files inside. Image in format IMD made long ago. And images DMK made with DMK Creator 3.2 and PDI made with DSKPRO 11.1

Please analyze it, test it, test the conversion tools, and say if the tools and images are suitable for preservation purposes.

Regards

Added NEMERDMK.ZIP and SLAYRDMK.ZIP extracted with READ-DMK v0.38 and interface DDX 3.0e (MICROSOL type), double side, 42 tracks. I was not able to combine DAT files here in my PC. Got 'acess denied' error.
