I'm not quite sure what you are trying to do.

You need a disk controller that can write a single density track 0 and a particular address mark on the Directory on the disk.

Go here ( http://www.classiccmp.org/dunfield/img/index.htm [http://www.classiccmp.org/dunfield/img/index.htm] ), get the TestFDC.exe and run it to see if the disk controller in your Tandy 1000 can write a disk the Model 1 can read.

If that passes, I would format a disk in the emulator and use it to copy the .CMD files to the blank disk from the disk image.

I am trying to make physical model 1(not coco1) disks ‎using a Tandy 1000 (286).

The Tandy 1000 is running DOS 6.22 from C: DRIVE (cf card) and has a physical 5 1/4 floppy. ‎ ‎I am using a Model 1 emulator on my win10 laptop to ‎create a virtual. Dsk. by adding /CMD files. I then copy that. Dsk onto my CF card. I can't seem to do a COPY *.* from C drive (cf card) to B drive (5 1/4)

Any suggestions would be appreciated

On a side note I figured out how to convert CMD files to CAS so that I can at least load them like a WAV.
