I haven't been able to make physical disks from the images supplied on the Lo-Tech site.

They will be problematic for most people as they are double-sided, and not every Model III/4 user has double sided drives.

So, my plan is to learn how to make physical disks from them, and in the process make SSDD 40 track disks from which I'll make fresh Imagedisk images.

I'll post later when this is done.

I haven't used CP/M in over 30 years, so I have things to re-learn.

What I can say so far is this...

Both images in the Lo-Tech Driver .ZIP ARE SSDD 40 track images. Both are system disks. I would expect the sources disk to be a DATA disk, but it isn't.

I made better .DMK images of both disks. I'm going to use a Model 4 Emulator on my 486 later today to write the images out to floppies, and then to make Imagedisk images from them.

I'll probably re-make the other disk images I made the other day for the LDOS/LS-DOS drivers.

I made updated images of all the driver disks. There has been no change in the driver code, but I cleaned up the disk images.

This one has disk images in .DMK format for use in most emulators to write out physical disks.

Please test these and let me know how they work for you. If they work for others, then James can put these on the Lo-Tech website.
