I know I can do this with sio2pc and APE, but I don't have either. Is there a way to copy an ATR image to a floppy drive by using the flash cart? I'm thinking I would copy the ATR image to the flash and then use the Atari to copy from the flash cart to the floppy drive.

It's pretty unusual but you could do it.

Make an image with a bootable disk sector copier in slot #1. Put the disk you want to copy from in slot #2. Set your Atari disk drive to drive #3.

Burn the resulting image to a 8mbit flash cartridge. When you get to the menu select slot #1 and start the sector copier. I recommend Diskwizard II, as it will copy without bypassing the internal SIO patches.

Once the disk copier has started, select the source drive as drive #2 (ROM disk in cartridge slot #2) and the destination as drive #3 (The real Atari disk drive).

I am not home to try this, but I believe it should work.

Thanks for the help. I used disk magic and stubled a little trying to read drive #2 (error), but then learned that ctrl-shift-2 would make drive 2 appear as drive 1. Copying from #1 to #3 worked like a charm.

Thanks again.

I don't think so, I believe he wanted to use the USB Programmer + Maxflash cart with disk images to accomplish it.
