You should be able to do so, but due to an unfortunate design aspect
of HDBDOS, you cannot copy directly to or from the FIRST virtual
floppy in a given DSK file.

If you enter DRIVE OFF 0  you can  BACKUP 0 TO 1 (or 1 TO 0) to copy
between the floppy disk in drive 0 and virtual disk 1 in the dsk file
loaded into the active DriveWire slot.

All of the various drive numbers, virtual disk numbers and DriveWire
slot numbers can be quite confusing.
