48tpi or 96tpi drives ?
#1
I am from Germany (Munich) and new in the forum. I have some strongly copy-protected programs (e.g. VisiOn from VisiCorp.). All are on 5.25" Double Density floppy disks. Can one copy such floppy disks better with 48tpi or with 96tpi drives? If Double-Density floppy disks with 96tpi drives are copied, are the tracks written in the correct width?

I'm sorry, if my English should be bad. https://www.cbmstuff.com/forum/images/smilies/angry.gif

What format disks are these? If they are 5.25" 1.2MB disks, then you MUST use a 96 TPI drive. If these are Atari 400/800, TRS-80, CP/M, and most Apple II and C64 disks, you can use a 48 TPI drive. A 96 TPI drive will work in all cases though, so it is much more versatile.
