look for "The Defeater". it is excellent for just that application (i
know--i wrote it). it is available as a public domain program.
if you don't know which track can't be copied, use the "find uncopyable
once you know what track you want to copy use "read a track" and "convert
this will read the format of the track you want to copy and set up a
then use the "format a track" feature to format the track you wish to
next, use "read a sector" and "write a sector" to copy individual sectors
(using the track, side and sector data displayed in the "convert"
***note*** if no sectors are displayed during conversion, then there
were no sectors and the track may be pure data and will probably work
without copying sectors.
