There are too many size variants (number of tracks and sectors) that there is danger of misdetection (there are no identifiers), thats why PC disks are only detected if extension is known. (.ima or .img are more "official" extensions for PC disk images)

Diskspare images are always detected because they are larger than any other "normal" image. (but much smaller than HD images)
