- wouldn't teledisk be useful for that stuff (non cp/m
apple disks anyhoo). The person who wrote disk2fdi
suggested I use it to archive quad density, 720k 5
1/4" floppies from a Tandy 2000. Little did I know
there was at least one utility included with some OEM
DOS's that could read write to such or similar formats
(the file system is not 100% identical to say a 3 1/2"
720k disk...something about a descriptor entry being
different (?) ). But I used Teledisk and it worked
fine :). I don't have a working 2000 at the moment,
but I was able to execute T2K BASIC on a celeron 400.
Chances are it did the job.
And in fact, for what it's worth, I seem to recall
being able to WinImage the disks, of course using a
high density drive courtesy of K.Leavitt.
