It's part of the copy-protection...
You have to write protect the disk after writing it, otherwise the loader fails with checksum errors.
Usually people who copy a disk don't write protect the copy :lol:

Re: How to create single, not two, MFM img file from DS 8" disk?

Depending on the format, if there is a chance that side 1 contains valid information both sides will be read automatically. Additionally, using stream files in preservation mode enforces reading both sides. However, you can override the side selection with additional parameters. If side 1 is empty, ...

Re: Amiga Game "Debut"

If you have that the IPX file it can be imported to CTA, and it will set each track description correctly, so you can take a look.
Note, that there is no guarantee that your version is the same as the release, so be careful.

Re: Amiga Game "Debut"

Can't remember, but can take a look at the dump. CTA definitely has a format descriptor for the protection used though.
Please upload it to the SPS contributor FTP.
