Hello everybody!

I have some 1300 floppydisks full of MSX software, and i want to convert them to file images for trading or just archiving (floppydisks seem to break down in time...)

Which PC-program is the best to read the disks and make file images? (and are they readable in all favourite MSX emulators??)

Thanks in advance!

There are several programs available, bu I use DCOPY to copy image <-> disk and DSKTOOL for files <-> image.

I was thinking of winimage... but is there a tool which also can read some of the old disk copy protections??

MSi, check for example this newspost. At the NBNO-site you'll probably find the route info and all, I don't have them anywhere near me atm, sorry ;)
