Listen, all those japanese protections are like the same. So, it's the same type included in the 1%.
You have no idea of the amount of locks that we have here in Brazil.

I believe you, but for me these Brazillian specific disks are not that interesting. I'm more interested in all the officially supported disk software in Japan (and some in the Netherlands).

Quote:

And the only type o lock that these routines can check is the Overlapping Sectors Lock and Clone Sectors Lock, which are very difficult to be copied by automatic ways.

OK, but can they be dumped to PDI perfectly/automatically?

Also, do you have an update on the spec of the PDI format?

Crashes on me while flushing the read buffer to harddisk:

Configuration is FS-A1ST with 1MB DRAM, MEGASCSI on SLOT1 (1GB HDD, 1MB SRAM disk at A:) and Microsol CDX-2 on SLOT2 being used to read the disk in question.

The disk is the original DISK1 of Illusion City.

Actually the protected brazilian disks are that interesting indeed.
You just need to have a brazilian floppy disk interface.

About PDI file format. There is no new version. It was not necessary. The last version works ok.

If DSK-PRO can not duplicate a specific disk, the PDI file of this disk may work on a future emulator.
But it may not either.

Well, we were going to test that with l_oliveira, but he ran into a problem, see above.

Try to duplicate the disk first with "C" option.
Tell me if it works.
The creation of the PDI file does not work with DOS1.
We need DOS2 or Nextor.

And I dont have that type of equipament used in that test.
DSKPRO may not work with SCSI interfaces.

But lets first try to duplicate the disk to another disk first.
Tell me the results.

I don't see why writing to the HDD should be a problem... Using the standard file handles interface would achieve that anywhere, no?

MEGASCSI advanced features do not function at all without DOS2. It's like NEXTOR, actually.

So I can't use DOS1 to make a PDI file.
I can't use SCSI interface because the program crashes with it while trying to write the PDI file to the HDD.
(MEGASCSI kernel is DOS2 based)

I was not given a option to direct copy the disk. I should boot the computer without the SCSI connected to be given that option?

I have enough memory to copy the whole disk in a single pass if DOS1 is running, I believe.

Thoughts? And I am willing to help you test it if you can make it work with the MEGASCSI.

No, DSK-PRO runs in an upper part of the memory, so in some machines the routines to write and read files (BIOS) does not work using DOS1.
Using DOS2 or Nextor, it should work perfectly in all machines.
I don't know why it does not work there with your computer with SCSI interface. I need to have a SCSI card to check it here.

But please, first, test just with the "C" option just do duplicate the disk to another disk.
Did you try that? What happened?

PS: to direct copy the disk, press letter "C", choosing first the SOURCE disk and DESTINATION disk.

It is faster to emulate the configuration that he has, if it runs into locks, it will do in emulators aswell.

In my particular case, where DSK-PRO is loaded in the ram shouldn't really matter because I am using DOS2 and as you say there should be no limitations since it's running on DOS2.

Your program is trying to empty the copy buffer to proceed to the next portion of the copy but it crashed while trying to write to the HDD. Works perfectly until it reaches that "WRITING FILE" part.

Also it was curious when it tried to image my SRAM disk as if it was a floppy. That crashed it, too. (It correctly only allowed that to be attempted on BIOS mode) That happened by mistake on my first attempt at running the program.

I'll give a try a direct copy later tonight.
