Back in the day I used "Super U" on my TRS-80 Model III to backup TI disks with copy protection.  I always thought it was kind of cheezy to buy a program and then be prevented from making a personal backup in case anything went wrong.

I tried Super U on my TRS-80 Model IV but it wouldn't work, so I dug out the trusty ole Option board. And you are right, it is cheesy when you spend all that money on a program and can't make a backup copy.

I know I have mentioned this before, and I mention it again as a reminder to myself, but I would like to see sometime what the Commodore 1571 can do with our DD disks.  While it can support FM, it is hard-wired for MFM but I suspect that would be easy to defeat.
