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.
Select according to the disc image file. This is the default.
Use the DSK (CPCEmu format) image driver.
Use the extended version of the DSK format.
Use the floppy driver.
Use the hard disk (MYZ80 format) image driver. (This format cannot be autodetected.)
Use the CFI (DOS fdcopy format) image driver. (This format cannot be autodetected.)
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).
Detect from the first few bytes of the file. This is the default.
Huffman coded (SQ / USQ).
Gzipped (gzip / gunzip).
Burrows-Wheeler compressed (bzip2 / bunzip2).
- -side SIDE
Determines which side (0 or 1) of the disc (image) is to be identified.
