- Is it possible to write an Amiga, Commodore 64 or any other non-IBM disk
image back to a real floppy disk using a standard PC?
- NO. The trick used to read non-IBM disks cannot be used to write
those disks. The PC floppy disk controller (FDC) is not able, with
any trick imaginable, to write non-IBM sectors.
To go a little into more details, the problem is that the FDC always
encodes data into standard MFM, excluding any other kind of encoding
(for example GCR), and cannot write any other synchronization marks
than those of a standard IBM sector, excluding the Amiga track
does this mean that we can write Amiga disks on the PC one way or another?
