that's actually the exact order that I tried it in!
Actually, first I tried formatting dskini, then port to read.
Didn't work. Formatted with dos. Copied to, read back.
Worked. dskini format again, then port, no avail.

>> Having some issues -
>> Got a Compaq Deskpro EN, like 800MHz P3, installed HD, DOS 6.22, removed CD, installed 5.25" 360KB floppy drive.
>> Man - what a flashback machine!
>> Anyways, using port.exe, can't read any CoCo floppies.
>> Dskini.exe will format it, but port.exe will not read what dskini just formatted.
>> DOS will format, copy to, and read from it, so i know the floppy is good.
>> Any ideas?
>> Any other software to use to image coco floppies for archiving?
