It's not easy to automate the process of archiving C64 / C128 files. I had
been experimenting with a lot of labor-intensive methods. Bryan Pope
showed me a method for imaging disks using a Retro Replay and an RR-Net
made by Individual Computers. You can sometimes purchase these from
Protovision in Germany:
At the time there were no Retro Replays available so I substituted it for a
MMC64, also from Individual Computers. The advantage of the MMC64 is that
it has a built-in SD card reader. In theory you can download your entire
64 library to an SD card and never use a disk drive again.
If you're interested in how to make archives of C64 disks in about 20
seconds, follow this link:
If you'd like to download a few D64 images to test them and let me know if
they work for you, I'd appreciate the help:
...I made these using the tools and techniques described above.
NOTE: D64 is the "zip file" of the C64 world, a diskette image merged into
one file. This is necessary to allow copying of non-PC-friendly Commodore
Now I have a little C64 station permanently networked to my PC, and about
2000 more disks to go!
