  3. Please consider the fact that some disks may be NOT correctly read by default!
  4. select 'Image Copy'
  5. choose 'Read' option
  6. insert a blank disk and enter a name for the image you want to create
  7. insert the floppy you want to archive. Let the program read all tracks and insert the blank disk when prompted
  8. you finished! Just insert the floppy with the image-disk on it into the PC drive. Copy the .DIM file and run it with Steem.
