Hi Robert,
thanks for your fast reply.

I guess this will cause other problems because my PC's drive is an HD
drive (I had a lot of trouble mixing HD & DD drives and media). However,
I'll try it with a "virgin" DD disk, formatting this one with the PC's
HD drive and JV DISKINI and using a backup program on the CoCo which
copies sector by sector (no track copy. Isn't BASIC's BACKUP command
copying track-wise?). Maybe I have to write my own program using DSKI$
and DSKO$...

Aren't the MESS tools able to grab a DSK image in JV format?

Regards, Torsten
