Title: I've got a bunch of PCW discs. How do I dump them?
Post by: khaz on 17:57, 29 February 16
bought a set of discs some time ago, without really realising they were used on PCW. Before formatting them blank, I figured you could be interested on whatever is on these discs? Here's my hardware:

CPC6128 with a working disc drive
HxC floppy emulator
an external 3.5" drive
X-MEM (soon)

I haven't tried anything yet, I don't even know if the popular copiers can handle the PCW formatting. Is there a specific procedure to follow in order to get an exact archive?
