md3serial - view or change serial number on MicroDesign discs.
md3serial [-serial SERIAL] [-format FORMAT] [-type TYPE] [-side SIDE] [-comp COMP] DISKIMAGE
Md3serial allows the serial number on program discs distributed by Creative Technology (or image files made from such discs) to be viewed or changed.
-serial SERIAL Write a new serial number to the disc (up to 7 characters). If this is not present the existing serial number remains unchanged. -type TYPE Determines which driver is to be used. auto Select according to the disc image file. This is the default. dsk Use the DSK (CPCEmu format) image driver. edsk Use the extended version of the DSK format. floppy Use the floppy driver. myz80 Use the hard disk (MYZ80 format) image driver. (This format cannot be autodetected.) cfi Use the CFI (DOS fdcopy format) image driver. (This format cannot be autodetected.) raw Use the raw driver. -comp COMP Select the compression method used on the source disc image file (has no effect when reading a floppy disc). auto Detect from the first few bytes of the file. This is the default. sq Huffman coded (SQ / USQ). gz Gzipped (gzip / gunzip). bz2 Burrows-Wheeler compressed (bzip2 / bunzip2). -side SIDE Determines which side (0 or 1) of the disc (image) is to be identified.
