Summary: Problems copying the FAST format, too


I've tried copying a disk formatted with "Formater" with the FAST format
and had problems too.  Since it puts a bad sector on each track, on
purpose, it is no surprise that ST-COPY says "read error" and stalls.
In effect, the disk is "copy protected"  (yuck!)...

Does anybody know of a way to copy such disks, hopefully faster than
the VERY SLOW operation of programs that copy "protected" disks?
Or can somebody WRITE such a program?
