[Coco] Digger3 not booting?

I made a real floppy using the SDC's write disk option.
 When I get home I will try a few things.
First I will try both SDC and physical floppy but use my 512k coco3. It's possible that the 2mb is causing probllems

If that doesn't work I will use DW to mount the disk and report back

Thanks for the DW suggestion.

Here is the result of further testing on a 512k Coco3 with a Disto Super Controller II using Disk
Basic 2.1.

The game disk was loaded into Drivewire and copied over to a 2.5" MF2DD disk formatted on the Coco
in disk 1. This disk was selected with DRIVE1, the game started with LOADM"D3", and seemed to run

Given the above, it is likely that the SDC hardware is causing a problem.
