Whats the best solution...

Guess the Demo from the disc Picture

While going over old discs I came across this in my collection. The disc has failed and it will not read and makes bad noises in the floppy drive now presumed dead :( Or maybe its not :) The disc was distributed in England and was a PD title, I recall this being a demo I liked or at least every time...

Re: Advice on disc emulator and recomendations

Re: Advice on disc emulator and recomendations

Okay, I dint know that, I found a program that easily and very quickly converts from MSA to ST
