Hi,

Just got a note from Bob Puff, the author of the Disk Communicator
program.  I Told Him That I Was Getting The Msg To use the 
"Filefix2" program to correct a "corrupted" file.  He said that
there is a bug in the Discom program that puts out that msg 
occasionally when trying to discom a double density file.  If you
get that msg and its a single density (or enhanced), the file is
bad.  The program is no longer relevant, as it was intended to fix
the duplicate sectors incurred when downloading from a FoRem based
system.

Bill
