Hi,

I finally got my hands back on my old infogrames floppies (l'affaire, tnt, les passagers du vent... ) all work but one. Les Passagers du Vent got corrupted somehow. I was able to reformat the disk however so I was wondering if there's a way to re-dump the a .dsk of the game onto the floppy. I don't have disk drives on my PC at the moment but I can get one. Or maybe it can be done with a Mega flash rom cart directly ?
any pointers I had a quick look around the forum and wiki but nothing jumped out so maybe I missed sth

Provided the game did not have copy protection, you can copy a disk image onto your MegaFlashROM SD card and write it to disk using PUTDISK.COM or FDLOAD.COM.

Those tools to write disk images to floppies are available with any disk interface, such as the MegaFlashROM SD, Sunrise IDE, or a second floppy disk drive. Even with a single disk drive you can write from one disk to another by switching floppies using the virtual B: drive. (Although you’ll have trouble to fit a disk image on a floppy disk, as it’s slightly too big to fit when uncompressed.)
