Hi to all.
This is my first post here.
My nick is omonimo.
I have a question.
I have svi 328 and 318 with expander 605 and 601 and
2 floppy unit , one for each expander, but i have no disk.
I have found cpmss.dsk, cpmds.dsk and basicds.dsk but
i'm no able to transfer to real disks.
I have tried with dcopy with many parameter, with
many floppy unit, 320, 1.2, connected to pc.
I have tried to connect expander's floppy unit
to pc; dcopy write the image, but
svi don't boot.
I also have used msxboot for every disk.

Someone kons if it's possible and then how to do?

IIRC SVI formats few first tracks to 18 sectors (256 bytes each) Rest of the disk is formatted as on PC... 9 sectors (512 bytes each)

First tracks can be really pain to read/write on modern PC, but rest should not be problem with correct software. First tracks typically contain Disk BASIC, that is loaded on boot time.

Sorry, I don't have solution for you...
