Thanks for your time and help. Sorry I've been quiet since Friday but life
is what happens when you've made other plans.

To answer the questions....

The laptop is a Sony Vaio 64bit W7 Professional 4GB ram.

The hard disc image (long file names) was downloaded from
http://www.marutan.net/rpcemu/ unpacked, and placed at 
Program files\RPCEmu.

Using *status, I can see that idediscs is set to 1.

I have not tried to format the disc.

The disc from above says it is 262,080K bytes. The disc I used a couple of
years back is 262,081KB. I've tied both and neither work.

I've seen an article saying I need to write some C code and run it to fix
this. If that's the case its game over as far as I'm concerned.

Its hard not to conclude that either the emulator or the hd download is
broken.

Ralf, as for your 'digest' MD5 SHA1 question. I have been using Acorms since 1982 and RO since 1990, I have never seen any of those terms before and don't have the remotest idea what you mean, sorry. 


Any help appreciated.

Bob.
