May be possible Joe, but why?????  When you copy from datapack to disk, the 
copy program knows which is which.  To trick the copied "disk" you would 
have to change some info in the boot block which tells ADAM which type it 
is.

Yeah, I remember also seeing mention of 320k data packs...which leads to the
question...

How does the tape or disk know it's a tape or disk? Would it be possible to
make a 320k disk image think it was a 320k data pack image?
