    Yup, I knew some effort was being made. But today, just about any cheap MCU can do the job, so I don't see much need for the DOB or CW, or for that matter, MP.

    What's more interesting is figuring out the encoding and file system...

    I do understand that many people just want to make copies of a disk and don't care much about how information is represented.

    It looks like this is one of those cases, I should have asked advice here before I purchased a replacement, at lease I learned a few things.

    Thanks,

    If you still are interested in a CW ISA board then this company still seems to carry it.

    Not sure if they ship outside Sweden though.

    Wondering if you have used it as yet?

    I have one, however I've never really had a serious play with it...

    What software are you intending to use, Linux drivers?

    I wanted to use it to write-back Apple" Disk-Images to real disks, but this does not work.
    What works is to create a new disk.image from a real Apple2-Disk and then write it back to another one.

    But that is not usefull for me, because I have no Apple2 Disks, only Disk-Images downloaded over the Internet.
    So I'll have to go for the ADtpro stuff (cable).

    In reviewing the thread, you don't say what system you're using to work the CW. I do know that Tim Mann's cw2dmk has issues with a 64-bit system that produce symptoms like you describe, just for TRS-80 disks instead of Apple. Many of the programs for using the CW are old enough to have some 32-bit 'things' going on that don't like a straight compile on a 64-bit system.

    Ok, thanks. It is definitely not the issue I saw, then.

    Why not? The software is DOS based, I thought...or Linux
