    Hi, I'm the proud owner of a full Apple IIe stocking a Duo 5.25'' Disc Drive. I also have a few games (Frogger, Frogger 2, PacMan, and PacMan Family) I make backup copies of all my vintage software and I was wondering how I could make some copies of these discs. Any help will appreciated. Thanks. :apple:

    The old games used really weird individual copy protection schemes, so you can't simply do a diskcopy of the disk. they were protected with such things as illogical sectors, intentionally bad checksums, etc. I remember when I had an Apple II I wanted to copy a program I really needed and it never really copied.
