Don't stay in the past, download now this super software for free.

What many thought impossible happened. The TDC-600 Disk Interface, which is currently sold by Paulo Maluf and Daniel Ravazzi, is supported by the new DSKPRO Light Version.
This simplified version supports all existing disk interfaces for MSX, being able to copy floppy disks at a speed only reached by light.

And obviously, as the name implies, the program allows you to generate floppy images (.DSK) from a physical disk, and vice versa.

You can use 2 floppy disk controllers on the same computer to make a floppy copy.
For example:
You can connect a TDC-600 interface to a Turbo-R ST and do all the operations above with these 2 floppy controllers, using the Turbo-R's internal drive and the external one connected to the TDC-600.

Generating diskette images (.DSK) or creating a physical diskette from a DSK image is much easier if you have an IDE or Mega Mapper or any other such interface.

It does not stop there. DSKPRO Light uses any memory mapper or megaram plugged into any slot.
Copy speed is daunting. It's all very fast as the access is direct to FDC.
And all with a super simple and intuitive interface.

Just what I think was a translation mistake:

This simplified version supports all existing disk interfaces for MSX, being able to copy floppy disks at a speed only reached by Luz.

I think that Luz is the portuguese word for Light and somehow it was not translated, it makes more sense to have the name DISKPRO LIGHT and the "marketing hype" speed only reached by light.... Tongue

What is the difference between the full version? It works for DSK format only?

If you select "80T Double", "DISK -> FILE" and the source "Drive A:" with destination "Drive A:" (which is a floppy), you will be prompted to change the disk while copying, but clearly there is no there is enough space for the DSK file on the target.
Here instead of warning you about the space problem, the program will crash while copying. Better to inhibit the creation of DSK files when you do not have a destination of sufficient capacity.
