It is possible that the disks you made are bad. I just downloaded the demo from
and it works on my Coco3.
Now the zip file contains two .dsk images representing sides 1 & 2 of the original flippy. I made 
two disks from the images and switched disks rather than trying to make a flippy. I mounted the 
images in Drivewire and did BACKUPs to the CoCo disks.

The demo does not work with with disks mounted on Drivewire probably because the ml program is 
trying to read floppies with it's own code. The same is likely with the CoCoSDC.
