News: DSKExtract Utility Available

Talk about ask and ye shall recieve! Chipple has added another quick and useful utility to the CoCoist's arsenal with DSKExtract:

This one extracts files from a DSK image, making it super easy to mix and match to make your own custom DSK images (with File2DSK), as well as transfer .bin and .bas files extracted from DSK images to your CoCo. Using a cable such as Cloud-9's DriveWire, or Roger Taylor's PC Link Cable, you can easily trasfer programs to your CoCo extracted out of DSK images on your PC. Then let your CoCo save them on whatever storage device you have hooked up. (No more antique 5 1/4" disks, if you're so inclined!)

Like File2DSK, DSKExtract only works on single sided, 35 track images (JVC format, no header). But with few exceptions, that's exactly what you need. Give it a try. It doesn't get much easier!
