i just did a bunch however i'm getting different CRCs for the same games done multiple times. any suggestions so can at least verify my own transfers? (obviously i don't know whether or not i have true verified dumps until compared with what others have)

is it okay that i continue to press retry when i get "Data on the disk in drive A: may be damaged. You must use the right kind of floppy disk; you must connect your hard disk properly." message, while ST writes data to Pasti Transfer Disk? sometimes i get this message quite a lot.

basic setup, a 1040STfm. hoping to play a role in "software preservation"

AFAIR, ijor once said that this is perfectly ok (getting different CRCs for the same disk when imaged more than once).
As long as the image works on your Steem setup and as long as you don't get any critical error messages from the Pasti imager then you should be fine - except for a very, very few titles that can't be imaged properly with Pasti yet. :-)

i was able to create my latest set of images without encountering errors however my 3.5" PC internal floppy crapped out on me. :(

i have successfully done Disks 2 & 3 for Axe of Rage but unfortunately Disk 1 will have to wait
