Here is the version 0.0.5 that give me the error, with ono disk image to test.
But it gave me error with all images, not only this.

version 0.0.6 works fine.

Does this tool store settings?
If so , it would be nice it stores in the program folder (portable).
Thanks

Thank you, Gig71.
Yes, I've fixed this problem when I made 006, it was just a missed thing left in 005.

Thanks a lot! I really like the simplicity and ease of use. This is nkw my favorite tool to managing dsk images.

Thank you, DRomero! Smile I'll try to make it even more useful.

Have you think to support openMSX HD images? I know maybe I'm asking for too much and I'm already grateful for the tool in this state. But it will make the ultimate FDD/HD image tool Smile

I didn't yet encounter these things in practice (the HDD images).
How do I even get those for some initial checks?
Not promising anything for now, though.

openMSX harddisk images are just files representing the sectors of a harddisk (or SD card or CF card, ... Etc.). Nothing more, nothing less. So it is just sector data.

@Manuel: true, but unlike disks with HDDs you have partitions that have to be taken into account. So ideally you must be able to read (and write if you want to also create HDD images from scratch) the partition table.

Do you happen to know if the partition tables are the same for Nextor, Sunrise, Beer IDE and Novaxis?

Partition tables on various MSX harddisk interfaces are not the same.

Indeed. But my point was: an "openMSX HDD image" doesn't exist. Or at least, it's very trivial. But a "Nextor", "Sunrise", "Beer IDE" or "Novaxis" HDD image does exist. And that's not trivial.

So if you want to add HDD image support, you probably want to focus on Nextor, at least to begin with, since it is the most common these days.
