Hi all,

Just put my hand on some old memories with this soft called 'Sound Synthesizer'
[link]

Syd (Bolton) was kind enough to dump the content of the original disk into a D64 using 'Cat Weasel' controller.

Unfortunately the D64 dumps aren't loadable from my experience (stays at LOADING forever in both VICE and CCS64 with true 1541 emulation.

I'm no expert on C64 restoration, but I wonder, am I at the right place for submiting d64 for experts to peek into ? Syd dumped 5 d64, he told me he had bad blocks on the first couple few, but he managed to have a good one (sound synthesizer-5.d64)

I know Laing Marketing used copy protection on some soft (deflector, robots), so I suspect this, but maybe the image is corrupted somehow.

PS: I have also couple other software to submit soon.

Hello,

Most likely you'll need to capture the disk at a lower level to get the protection. D64 only works for unprotected (or very, very lightly protected) software.

You'll need a ZoomFloppy, and either a 1571 or parallel modded 1541.

Hi Pete, thanks for the answer.

Do you have such equipment ? If so, is that possible to send you the disk so you can archive it ?

Here's the d64 in case someone wants to peek into it... [link]
actually I can load up the "instructions" prg, but the "loader" one gets stuck. And "synthesizer" won't load.

Thanks,

Hi.
Where are you located? if you send me the disk, I could make a copy of the disk with my hardware and send you the resulting nib and g64 plus a d64 file
