your symptoms seem to me to be consistent with the drive not being able to
read the second side of the disk.
I'm not familiar with the "cocodisk" programme. Is it able to write an OS9
image to a real disk?

Besides a mathematical inclination, an exceptionally good mastery of one's
native tongue is the most vital asset of a competent programmer.
