You rock! This is so cool that you doing it. I just realised that if you will success with that functions, then we will be able to make copies of not copyable data from our Newtons :)

I’m testing new functionalities now. Other functionalities seems working fine :)

I’m happy to provide more card dumps if you need it.

Just open the "Settings" dialog and select the "PC Cards" tab. You will find a "+" button to add cards, a "-" cards to remove them from the list, up and down buttons to sort the list, and a "..." button to edit aspects of a selected card.

I can create new card, but when I’m trying to create from snapshot I’m getting window ‘Can’t create Card Image. CIS file is corrupt.’ Any idea what I’m doing wrong?
