Hi all , I offered to help transfer some software to physical disk for ComSoft6128 but have been unable to copy "Better than Life 1".  The first disk seems to have a weird structure after track 7 and the 2nd disk had the same odd format throughout.


Does anyone have any idea how to do this or is it a lost cause?


Cheers Trevor

  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.

Never tried, but I might have some time tomorrow and I'll try it out.

Nope, whatever I try gives me an error on track 7.

If you have a HxC, the hfe files on CPCRulez work fine. You just can't copy them to real media.

I haven't tried this myself, but the program Punishment that was included with issue 3 of Better Than Life may be able to copy the HFE files to a real 3" or 3½" disc. It was programmed specifically for copying BTL.

Just tested cpc-power dsk image to a 3 1/2" floppy using CPCdiskXp.
Working fine.
