manterola Posted May 14, 2020 Share Posted May 14, 2020 What you need is a "sector copier", or the duplicate disk from some DOS menues. In this kind of copy the program goes thru the diskette sector by sector, reading and later writing, no matter what file or part of the file is in any particular sector. Obviously, thing are always a bit more complicated when dealing with copy protection techniques that might be used in a specific diskette yiu want to copy. But in general, when writing a diskette have downloaded from internet, you need to set your sio2pc as D1: and leave the D2: empty. Then set your real disk drive as D2: with an empty real diskette in. Then load the Dos or sector copier from your sio2pc D1: then set the sio2pc D1: with the atr you want to copy and start the sector copier process using D1 as source and D2: as destination. This same can also be made using D1 as the real disk drive and D2: the sio2pc, or setting the sio2pc as D3: , etc. The important think is to be careful of what disk unit number is the source and which one is the destination. I am sure someone else can recommend you a good sector copier. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
