Why Galahad you speak of "this part of the collection" ?

There's other stuff you must still receive ?

I am bit busy at the moment, but I think Steffest is always in for a bit of imaging. So if we can help ... we do have some experience.

that said, why do you image Quaterback disks and not simply restore them?

also, please give the disks (all of them) to someone who has experience and knows how to image disks, someone who wont be resistant against tipps which programs have the best chance to recover the data.

thank you.
Im doing fine thanks

Hi mate,

I am actually browsing through each disk which you have salvaged and there are many rare modules (unfortunately not all with author names). I managed to find a disks full of tunes from an old contact of mine (Wave/The Electric touch) so it was a bit of nostalgia really.

Thank a lot for the tremendous work and I can't wait to get the next packages.

Sub0: so many sidmon tunes, this is like a dream.

Real mixture of stuff.

I think someone needs to give Crown/Cryptoburners a shout, could well be unreleased modules in this lot so far.

I suspected there would be a lot of new stuff.

I can't remember them all, but there are some modules on some of the comp disks as well, so you might want to check them out

resistant reason: ...as said in earlier msg, Galahad is the ONLY person who gets this stuff from me, he is FIRST one to check out, as there could be unreleased games , sources etc. included, which shouldnt be public directly... not before me has taken a look at... then we will see... so giving Phill tips and hints might be nice of you all, but iam sure he is clever enuff to get that all done, without 20 people getting on his nerves, we (phill and myself) do have all the time of the World to get through this collection from me... which includes around 3500disks! without them harddisks... and i just sent about 200 or so at the moment, so no need to hassle anything, comes time, comes software, that simple!. stay tuned or stay away. its all up to Phill anyways...

Ref your query about that disk, it simply says "Song-Disk NR7 Modules" which is printed by printer not by hand.

I used disksalv just in case there was any deleted files, and there was nothing.

So unless Subzero can remember, its unknown

I'm already using something that will correctly dump the last disk in a Quarterback set without having to do disk swaps and resetting options

I appreciate the helpful pointers from people, but theres this weird assumption that I don't have a clue what i'm doing with AMIGA DISKS when my speciality for over 20 years has been to deal with...... AMIGA DISKS!

Probably not, but i'll do the question anyway

There's a way to manage Quarterback disks under Windows with some application or it is strictly Amiga only ?

Thanks for attention, chip

Yeah, mostly graphics on that disk. I have found a Vanish source code disk for a couple of Skid Row intros, but Subzero needs to check it out first as to whether or not he's happy for it to be released.

Should be someone knowing TOSEC for sure (otherwise it's just a pain job of blind checking everything (and with no guarantees that there will be a good work done)).
I am not even sure if this tool may help as we are talking about newly created ADF from floppy-disks.
