[QUOTE=;15733]bub, do me and everyone else a favour before coming in with crap statements about Copy II PC and just think about the fact that a lot of copy protected floppies used the sneaky trick of leaving UNFORMATTED areas on the floppy, thereby completely throwing off the sector numbering.
As I said before you need UNFORMATTED floppies (Which you cannot get anymore) and a hardware device to allow you to skip areas of a diskette.
Just in case you do not know, there is NO way to unformat a floppy!
Stop wasteing peoples time with ill informed suggestions![/QUOTE]
You are not only very rude and unfriendly, but like most rude “know-it-all” people you are also completely wrong.
Its actually very easy to unformat a floppy, done it many times, you just need a very strong magnet and to “wipe over” with the magnet over both sides of the floppy several times…
Make sure you make at least 4 passes. 2 per side and on each side make 1 pass at 90Â° to the other.
Some floppies need two treatments to work.
Format the floppy first under windows (full format not quick) to make sure that the surface is in a good condition before even starting.
I used this method years ago, it works perfectly as you only need to wipe the old format…
I used a strong magnet for holding memos onto a metal wall…stronger is better…get a better magnet if it does not work for you…
