Re: IBM PC DOS 3.5" disks - parsing files from MFM sector image?

I think 7-Zip can also open most MS-DOS IMG files too.

Re: Split files appearing in 5.25" disk image

Googling shows Wordcraft 20 on cartridge by UMI (United Microware Industries) for the VIC 20, you can save to tape or disk, so is it a VIC 20 save disk not IBM?

Re: Understanding different read patterns...

Just an observation, but RPM 360 in that pic suggests you're dumping a 1.2MB 5.25" disk!

Notchless IBM PC 5.25" HD disks showing modified?

Have a copy of Leather Goddesses of Phobos 2 for IBM PC on 10 x 5.25" HD Disks which are notchless, but when dumping dtc shows Disk 4 and Disk 6 as completely modified, how is this possible on notchless disks?

Dumped with: dtc -p -fname/stream -i0 -v360 -i4 -l8
