[Coco] Virtual disk file formats

I'm pretty sure (but I could be wrong!) that there is no format per se 
for these types of files.  I think they are merely straight sequential 
dumps of the sectors of a drive.  So, really, the format is determined 
by the computer or operating system.  In other words, if I had a DECB 
disk and I dumped the contents of each sector of that disk starting with 
sector zero to a file, then I would have a disk image.  The same would 
hold true for OS9 or any other disk format or any other type of disk 
whether floppy, hard disk, thumb drive, sd card, etc.
