WFDCOPY 1.01


Another bad way to create images from ST disks. It gives similar results to WinImage for similar reasons. WFDCopy generates ST files.

ST files are recognized by all emulators: Steem, SainT, WinSTon, Stew, PaCifiST, Echo...

  1. Here is how to use WFDCopy 1.01: run the program under Windows
  2. insert an atari ST disk
  3. click on 'Disk to File..."
  4. check the option 'Slow Mode (sector mode)' in order to read the disk sector-by-sector
  5. name the file you want to generate
  6. you finished!

Please note 1: PC drives can't read disks with 11 sectors. But it most of the atari floppies were formatted with 9 or 10 sectors, so WFDCopy is useful most of the time. If you have disks formatted with 11 sectors, contact me (see adress at the bottom of the page).

Please note 2: you won't have better results with WFDCopy than Makedisk. So, WFDCopy should be considered as an average choice.
