Dumping and Apple II flippy disk

Post by notbobsmith »

Hi,
I recently purchased an Apple II game on eBay which I believe is a flippy disk. The disk is notched on both sides. I understand that ordinarily you need a modified drive to dump a flippy disk, but in this case, the disk has two index holes. So I should be able to dump the other side simply by flipping the disk over, right? If this is correct, what would be the best way to dump the disk for preservation? Dump one side in preservation mode, then flip it over and do the other side? Any help would be much appreciated. This is the only Apple II or flippy disk that I have so I have no experience with them.

Yes, that's pretty much the only thing you can do without a flippy modded drive.
You may want to restrict the stream to a single side by adding -g0 before -i0.
