I'm looking for a program without the FlashMegarom, to copy files from disk A: to Disk b: not the whole disk, but some certain files, a know the command copy in basic, but i can remember back in the 80's there was a great program what did the work. Maybe there are new utils around now, but i cant remember

Or.. use Multimento to copy files from disk a to disk b

MultiMente will work fine indeed.

In the 90's I also used the program BK (for MemMan) to copy many files.

i think the multimente option is a really good one. Select the files you want and give the copy command. No need to look further if you ask me.

Move the selector with the cursor key and press space on the file(s) you want to copy... a * will appear in front of the selected file(s).
Press C to copy. A dialog screen will apear asking where to put the file(s). Type the path there. That can be as simple as B: or as complex as D:\GAMES\ROM\C.
By typing just the drive name as destination (e.g. BSmile the file(s) will be copied to the last directory you were in on that drive. So if you don't want to type the complete path as in the example I typed in the previous line, you could go to that directory first by pressing L to change drive and type D: (as in the example) and navigate to the \GAMES\ROM\C folder (as in the example). Then go back to the source drive (by pressing L again), make the selection and copy by pressing C and type D: so it goes to the named example directory.

Tip: Check Multimente's top screen. It shows quite some shortcut keys.
Tip: Check here how it looks like to select and copy files.
Tip: Instead of pressing L and choose a driveletter, you can press 1 for drive A:, 2 for drive B: and so on.

By that I take it that A: is your megaflashrom?
If B: is your diskdrive 1, then C: is your diskdrive 2 (even if it's physically not there).
So copy your files to C: and your computer will tell you to insert disk to write to when necessary, and after that the disk to read from and so on until you're done...
The more ram you have, the less diskswaps you need. If you have two built in diskdrives (not a lot have that) then you don't have to do anything. And if you have a µsd cart in your MFR, you could copy it there first , change the disk and copy it to the destination disk.
So many options Smile
