Article #379 (419 is last): From: as195@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Joseph Pallendino) Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions,freenet.sci.comp.atari.spec.8bit Subject: yourbody.dcm file Reply-To: as195@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Joseph Pallendino) Posted-By: xx004 (aa700 - Michael Current) Edited-By: xx004 (aa700 - Michael Current) Date: Wed Dec 22 10:26:06 1993 I downloaded a file called "yourbody.dcm" After discomming the file a file appeared called YOUR_BOD.Y and my DOS 2.5 won't read it allthough it will read another file which came out of discomming. This other file is called Universe. Does this need a special DOS to run? If so, what type of DOS is needed. Note the line in the middle of YOUR_BOD.Y which is probably causing it to be unreadable. Thanks in advance. -- **** Answered by Michael Current, aa700: Bob Puff's Disk Communicator is used to transfer entire (boot) disk images as files. When you un-diskcomm a .dcm file, the resulting files may not necessarily be readable by DOS, but you probably have created a copy of the original (boot) disk. If I were you I would try just booting from the disk with the YOUR_BOD.Y file on it, best bet without BASIC enabled. Hope this helps!
