Special driver is not only for tracks over 80, but all - trust me, mine SW uses the same

Any solution that gives you SD card or something that the Atari can write to and then read by your PC will work fine. Or have someone with a working setup do the imaging for you

Ah, almost forgot - cleaning disk surface - look threads in SuperCard Pro Copier section about it.
