Is there any way to get Single Side disk image to work with OpenMSX 0.4 ?
I keep getting "bad file mode error" when trying to load files from those.Is there any way to get Single Side disk image to work with OpenMSX 0.4 ?

Are you using by any accident the msxmania disks ??
They are not completely correct. IIR they have a double sided disk bootsector and fat structure, with some fields adapted to work as a single sided disk. The internal routine that transform, physical tracks/sector to an offset inside the image does miscalculate the offset so that is why they don't work.
As Vincent (the creator of those disks) mailed me:
"It aren't SS-360KB disk but DS-360KB, a bug in the program I used to create those disks"

I can send you a perl program to fix this situation if you wish.

Otherwise the Single sided disks under openMSX work perfectly as far as I know.
If it isn't about the msxmania disks please post a bug report at openmsx.sf.net. And provide us if possible with the disk so that we can have a look at it.
