Quote from: Mark_wllms on 17:48, 24 June 22My physical 3" disc drive is playing up, so I love having a virtual CP/M disk drive I can load all my infocom games onto. However, I can't work out how to copy anything into the CP/M hard drives without using the physical drive. Is there a way of adding files to the drives, either on the Amstrad or via a PC?
You can use cpmtools. Full functionality only on Linux I'm afraid.
On a Linux machine you can install them like a normal install package from the main software repository.
eg. on Ubuntu:
sudo apt install cpmtools


You only need to insert the following  record in the /etc/cpmtools/diskdefs file:

diskdef hdcpm
  seclen 512
  tracks 65
  sectrk 256
  blocksize 8192
  maxdir 1024
  skew 0 
  boottrk 1
  os 3
end

Then you can copy files to and from the CP/M disk image with simple commands:
cpmcp -f hdcpm CPMDSK01.IMG myapp.com 1:myapp.com

It seems the Wild Turkey distribution of cpmtools works pretty well on Windows, so I can add files to the CPM hard drive now. Works well.

It seems that they have updated the binaries.
IIRC the previous version had some limitations.
Nice!!!

And here is the new HDCPM v1.05.
.dsk file attached in the first post as usual.

The main change in this version is support for the almighty Symbiface III of @TMTLOGIC .
Both SF3 and RSF3 are supported.
Special thanks to @HAL6128 for beta testing v1.05 as I don't own a SF3.

I hope all you hardcore CP/M users enjoy his version :P
