ADFer has an option for verifying the written disk against the image. If you do that and it passes, then it has been written successfully.

For reference, ADFer (and ADF-Blitzer before, and probably others) write the tracks by formatting them with the track data instead of a set pattern as per a normal format. So the format and the writing is done in the one step, making it nice and fast but also not requiring preformatting.

A good test of things would be to create or find an ADF of a system-friendly disk (e.g. Workbench), then write that to a blank disk and see if it can be read in Workbench.
