: : I have been able to successfully read/write disk images in both BASIC and Extended BASIC, but keep in mind that the DOAD images are PC99 format, not V9T9. (I respect the driver author's poor decision of disk formats. ;)
: Hmm, I must confess that the DOAD format makes no sense to me anyway! Hopefully, MESS will eventually support FIAD and things will be a lot simpler for users.
Whoops! (egg on face)
For those who hadn't noticed, MESS does _not_ use the PC99 disk format...in fact, it uses one of its own. Similar to V9T9's format (in that MESS *can* see the header/blocks free), there ought to be some straightforward way of converting the V9T9 format to/from MESS'...any takers?
