Title: Bummer! My Super Space Invaders had a problem!
Post by: gizz72 on May 31, 2004, 01:29:02 AM
Hi everyone,
 I've finally got me my WHDload installer of 'Super Space Invaders'. Convert my original disks(2) to ADF in me HDD. All is smooth. Until an error occured. "Disk corrupt/Unsupported version". Bummer!
 To be sure I did'nt miss anything, I took my A500, installed v1.3 rom again. Inserted my original disk. Just black. AARGH! my original disk 1 gone bye bye!!! or bye bye???
 How come ADF did not detect any track errors?
 Is there any way I can still save the originals?
 Am I too little too late?:-?  :-?
Thanks for the help.

Good day to all Amigans! :-D

Tried Diskdoctor?   :-P.








(NOTE: Don't use it, it'll kill the disk completely. It's how I completely obliterated my Beast II original disks. Back in the day when I didn't know that ripping a disk out of the diskdrive with the drive light on could do harm :-D).

Doh, doh, doh, dooooohhhhhh!

How many NDOS disks have I lost through using diskdoctor?  Best to make sure you system is check for viruses frequently and disks are backed up to .adf files.
