[Blindapple] copying fid to another disk

It sounds to me like you're not specifying drive 2's disk correctly. 
Also, I don't think there's a games6.dsk included with Messapple unless 
you found one on your own. You probably want games7.dsk.

To test this out, start the emulator as normal, with both disks 
specified. When you get to an Applesoft prompt, type the following command

The ,D2 specifies drive 2. If you get an I/O error, nothing is in drive 
2. If you get a catalog for drive 2, everything is working correctly. 
Now issue the following command:

You need the ,D1 to tell it to use drive 1. Now in FID, specify copying 
files from source slot 6, drive 1, to destination slot 6, drive 2.

If you're on a PC, there's actually a much easier way than using FID 
within an emulated Apple. You can download a program called CiderPress 
at http://a2ciderpress.com which will help you with this and many more 
tasks. CiderPress can read, write, create, import, export, etc. 
from/to/between Apple disk images.

Hope this helps,
