Here is the 40 track DiskBasic .hfe file formatted to 80 track on SVI328

The disk is 'physically' formatted to 80 tracks.
DiskBasic is copied to track 0,1 and 2 .
The 'logic' SVI format program that initializes track 40 (file directory) does not work. Error writing track 40?
Tried to copy a disk sector-by-sector and track-by-track to the Gotek HxC but it also stops at track 40.

Yes it works :D
Formatted the image to 80 tracks and made a backup of my SVI DiskBasic and CP/M system disk.
I'll do some more testing this weekend.
Thanks :D
