These are COPYIIPC images and I'm assuming that logically, I could just type in copyiipc image.c2p b: and that would work, but invalid parameter is what I get. I have no documentation just the original C2P disk so I'm wondering does anyone know what I have to type in to get this image to write back to disk?

Thanks,
Daniel

Copy II PC never supported reading or writing disks to the hard drive "out of the box". Some say it was an anti-piracy measure, but more likely it was to sell more of their Transcopy/Deleuxe Option Board.

However that didn't stop some determined third parties from developing an add-on.

So, what you need is the add-on program called "Snatchit". You run that, it invokes CopyIIPC, and instead of reading from a disk you can tell it to read from your CP2 image instead. Or you can read from a disk and create a CP2 file on your hard drive.
