Hello, I am / we are looking for a program that copies (most of) all reals MSX disk without problems.

Talking to my MSX-mate OeiOei-vogeltje, we remembered there was a good copy program back in tha days that copied almost all. It showed 'noise' (image) on the screen while copying. Does anybody know (the name of) this program??

Or does anybody know a good alternative? What is the best copying program around today? A program that copies (almost) ALL disks including (most) of all available MSX copyprotections?
[suitable for lets say regular European MSX computers like Philips and Sony MSX computers]

Regards,
ray2day

I think Formula is the only one that can copy with copy protections, but you need to have the 'formula' for the disk you're copying. But it's turboR only.

The one you mean with the 'noise' is KOPPIE, but that one only does normal disks, no protections. (And I'd use FastCopy 3 always instead.) To copy all protections you really need an Amiga ;-)

In other words: what you talk about does not exist.

I concur with Manuel. Back in the days I used Fastcopy, and for the disks it wouldn't copy I used my brothers Amiga (barf)

Thank you for all you replies.

@Luppie; FastCopy is a good copy program, but not as good as the 'noise' copy program I am talking about.

While you were posting, I took a look in my (real) disk archive (or in Dutch: in de vele "laat je zelf verrassen" diskettebakken die ik hier heb staan) and there I found the program.

And it INDEED COPIED THE DISK that I wanted to make a back-up copy of for a long time,
but could not copy with other MSX copy programs.

It's very simple and exact the same to what Larsthe18 printed above here. It is a very good program. And back in the days I can not remember there was any disk I could not copy with this program.

If I am correct MK-soft is public domain software nowadays, so I can post it here (if not: then admin I am sorry / please remove);

Hmmm, afaik, Amiga's had a 880k floppy disk.
Can you explain (or point a link) where someone could learn how those protections used to work and "how" an Amiga could overcome 'em?

[OFF] I remember using this on my amiga to copy Amiga disks...

I remember I used two programs to copy one protected disk.
The first thing was copying the whole disk. This had to be done on a computer which had two diskdrives connected. When there was a bad sector, I had to write it down.
When copying was complete, another copy program got started which could copy a (range of) sectors and did not support a second diskdrive, so I had to swap disks. I inserted a sector and copied it.
After all sectors which I had written down were copied I had a 1:1 copy.

I remember one name: Allcopy, but I don't know which of the two programs it was...

The Amiga can control the FDD directly. On MSX you are dealing with the FDC in between. That's why you can copy more stuff on an Amiga. You have full control.

ray2day: which disk did you try to copy? Now I want to try it myself. Tongue

The programs I used in the past for MSX were X-COPY and SMA Turbo Copy, this one used the VRAM to copy so some noise, as you say, were showed on the screen during the process. I don't know if this helps...
