Patton vs. Rommel 512k Floppy - Damaged?

Hi,

I have the 512k Mac game - Patton vs. Rommel and my Color Classic says it can't read the floppy.

Is a 512k floppy 800k or 400k? Can a CC read a 400k floppy? If it is indeed a 800k floppy does anyone know where I can download the game to reinitialize the floppy and put the game back on it? I assume the game is now abandonware since it is from 1988. I have search on Google but nothing for the mac version.

Thanks.

disks

Anything newer than a mac classic (i think) has a superdisk (the floppy, not dvd) that can read/write 400k 800k 1440k and MS-DOS disks. Try running disk doctor or an older version of norton on it. If you need a copy of norton disk utilities 1.0 email me (jeffreysk@verizon.net)

i think the 512k will use 800k floppies, if you're not sure, try it, it can't hurt

what OS are you running :? ..

what OS are you running :? ... i think either OS 8 or 8.5 dropped support for 400/800k floppies ... it may be that

No my CC is using 8.1. So I guess your right about OS 8 dropping support for that size floppy. I guess I will dig out my Classic.

Thanks

My Mac LC has problems reading reliably from a set of floppies designed for Fat Macs under System 7.0, so I don't know... might be that particular make of SuperDrive/Mac ROM as I know they share a lot of hardware.

Are you sure it's actually the drive and not the floppies getting old? Any floppy over 5 years or more is likely to start going down hill and any given change of temperature and humidity, and random electromagnetic surges... Blum 3

Patton vs. Rommel Game

I finally dug out my Mac SE and it loads the disk fine under System 6.xx.

My new question is this: I want to play this on my machines. I tried to copy it to the SE hard drive but apparently it is copy protected. Was this the norm back than. A person can't even make a backup copy on another floppy? Is there a System 6 program that will make a .img file from it?
