X-copy has a Nibble copy feature which can copy MS-DOS formatted disks...

rawread (http://www.arabuusimiehet.com/twilen/uae/rawread.lha) can create working extended ADF images from MSDOS formatted floppies.

It is not (yet?) possible to access pc floppy drive directly from WinUAE. (but it should be quite easy to integrate floppy drive support to next release's direct harddrive support, at least in theory...)

So what your saying here is making WinUAE able to read from REAL PC drives, and not just read/write PC formatted ADF files through crossdos or anything that uses MFM.Device ?

Is there source available for DISK2FDI thingo ?
I tried it about a month ago and it works a treat, maybe there is a way to incorporate that coding into WinUAE, I dont mind the 2 drive option. Its a great program

Yes, direct PC drive access will be possible in future (of course you can't read Amiga disks until Catweasel support is complete...)

I plan to add uaefloppy.device (or something like that) that can be used to access PC floppy drive directly.

Then the drive can be accessed from Amiga side by using following simple mountlist entries: (quick example)

A: device=uaefloppy.device
unit=0 ; drive A
FileSystem= L:CrossDOSFileSystem
surfaces=2
etc.. blahblah..

Unfortunately I am not yet sure if we need two mountlist entries (DD and HD floppies) or not..

No, it isn't. (and IMHO it isn't very good for direct WinUAE use because it is DOS-program that does not work very well under w98se and is completely incompatible with NT-based Windows versions..)

But *not only*, right?
Remember DPainter who successfully created a working extended ADF from a NDOS disk ("Terrorpods OCS").

Yes, but this thread was about msdos floppies

Rawread was originally programmed to create extended adf images from copy protected floppies (except protections that use modified bitcell timings, see CAPS wips for more information...)

What games likely used "Bit cell Timing" ?

If I created these extended ADF from some of my original disks, would they work in WinUAE ? Would the image be writeable back to Amiga floppy ? and still work ?
