Hi there!
My question is how to copy all my games and programs that I have on my Floppies to a folder in Windows in order to play with them with my Emulator RunMsx.
I already downloaded Dcopy but I don´t have any idea how to use it. Please I need help step by step to achieve this. I´m very interested!!!
Answer me here or send me an e-mail to [] Thanks for all. Hope any reply.

In the URL above you can find Diskmanager (filename "diskmgr.exe")
with this manager you can put files from disks and hd to diskimages and vise versa.
with a little exam, you can use it easily.

Don't forget to put all disks to WRITE PROTECTED before inserting them in your PC, otherwise Windows might break them.

Hi again!
I Downloaded the program Diskmgr.exe and it worked.
I have many floppies with various games and programs and what I want is to save one by one, extracting from the floppy to my HD.
What I do is:
1.- click on OPEN, then copy from A: (my MSX Disk)
2.- I select the files that the game I want to contains and click on FILE>SAVE AS and I give it a name. But it doesn´t work as I expected because it saves all the floppy content and not the files I selected.
How can I fix this? Is there any way to do so?
P.D. Of course that my floppies are write protected cause there are very precious to me!!

1- copy first all the files from disk in drive A to harddisk
2- start Disk Manager
3- go to File /New , select a disk format of 2 sides, 80 tracks, 9 sectors/tracks, 720 Kbytes
4- Drag and drop the files that you want to put on this disk image
5- go to File / Save as ... and give a name to your disk image

Thanks for your help I did it as you told me and it worked.
It took me the whole day to do so I had to saved more than 70 floppies with many games inside. But it was worth.
Now that I know how to work with this program a new sunrise comes for me!!!
