Trying to extract data from Atari 800 *.atr file, no luck

Hi. I'm trying to extract music from one demo file (X-Files, The (1988-02-01)(SHP)(pl)[stereo]), all I get after extracting is 14 corrupted 1Kb files.


I tried to use ATADIM, makeATR, Altirra, etc- no luck...


Are there any chances to extract the sound files?


Thanks in advance for any help :)


P.S. The demo file itself- http://nitroroms.com/show/file-info/L45161/Atari_8Bit/X-Files,%20The%20(1988-02-01)(SHP)(Pl)[stereo].atr.html

From what I can see there is no DOS on this disk that would understand what a file is to begin with. So entries in the directory are using illegal file names with invalid directory flags and each 'file' is 4 sectors long only. I suspect the simulated VTOC, and directory sectors are just eye candy and this one needs to be disassmbled as a boot disk which has no files at all.

 

CharlieChaplin is right about most programs not being able to even mount this disk to extract any files.

Hmmm,

 

this looks like a bootdisk with no filesystem to me. Or the files are hidden somewhere.

Think MakeATR, Atadim and others will only extract files from a standard DOS 2.x filesystem.
