40 track disk PC -> C64 transfer

What are the options for transfering 40 track d64 images from PC to C64?
The D64-Writer plugin in my MMC64 didn't handle it.
Is the U1541 the only option?
Is there perhaps some old DOS transfer-prg that can handle it (StarCommander?). Then I need to dig out my old XE1541 cable and put together an old PC in anticipation of the EoD release...

Starcommander can handle 40 tracks? I've been using MMC lately for transfering, it's great, but I do have a Starcommander-compatible cable here somewhere... But I can't plug it into my laptop, so in the future I have to visit a friend for copying that mysterious not-yet-downloadable-demo EoD everybody talks about :)

Yeah, just like opencbm/gui4cbm4win, which works from Windows just as well (no need to go DOS anymore). Remember, you need XM/XA1541 for that, XE won't work.

Parallel port on the 1541 and a Yap1541 cable which allows the use of NIBread by Peter Rittwage and Markus Brenner

IDE64 has been able to write 40-track images since ages ago :)

Necrothread awake! I have been VERY successful with 40-track disks using iechost. Very stable and just works. Every time. Before that I had some, very random, success with EasyFlash 3 USB Utilities V1.93, as well with using zoomfloppy with 1571 in burst mode, but now I am in love with iechost.

Another option is just to use 6-PACK (tool by Alpha Flight) and just convert the 1!,2!,etc. files to C64 and then use 6-Pack on C64 to unpack :)

Simply use Warp Copy II and tick in the 40 Tracks field :-)

Yep, love that tool. Using it via 1541U2+ and SounDemoN's codenet cart via Ethernet.

Yeah, IECHost works like a charm. Totally stable from what i did with it so far.

And you don't have a crashing C64 part in the middle. Pretty annoying that.
