[Coco] disk images in VCC

Wayne, that should have worked fine unless the original copy was unknowingly corrupted to start with. I pretty much create all my disks this way, but I have "blank" copies of all sizes of DSKs and VHDs (DECB & OS9 formatted) so all I have to do is copy one to my work folder and rename it. Then it's ready to go :-)

 I selected the decode.os9 file in Windows Explorer, right-clicked and
selected copy, then deselected the original file and right-clicked and
selected paste. The resulting file was named Copy od decode.os9. I renamed
the file decodeSrc.os9. Then I opened the image with EmuDisk and changed
the Volume Name to decode Source. This is the same method I always use for
copying disk images. This is the first time I've had any issue with VCC
being able to recognize a disk image. I also tried opening the image in
wimgtool. That worked too. Then I inserted the image into the drive 2 slot
of MESS 1.3.6b (the one I use currently) and ran the h6309 emulation. MESS
was able to open the image and I could see what was on it. VCC 1.4.3b is
the only emulator I use having this problem. I will supply more
information, if you can ask me questions and lead me through the process.
