    This is a much needed utility and should be part of any Apple II user's toolkit. Combine this with Copy II+ 5.5 and 8.4, ADT, Applewin, and various DOS images and you've got a fairly powerful arsenal for managing and transferring files between the two machines. For the more advanced users, look into SST if you're dealing with nibble images and copy protection. But back to Ciderpress: It needs to be modernized and revamped. I believe it needs the following options and capabilities: 1- drag'n'drop capability 2- more windows-like conventions and operation 3- modernize the codebase 4- a read/write sector editor 5- support for CFFA 6- ability to optimize and zero-out free space on large images 7- fix the existing bugs 8- the ability to build disk images and install dos on them straight away 9- somehow get rid of the "Tediousness" that seems to accompany using this program I say all the above because I want this to be the best possible utility. But whatever is to be done with it in the future, don't get rid of any functionality.

    I've used CiderPress from four years. This software, combined with ADTPro (https://sourceforge.net/projects/adtpro/) has helped to me for transfer lots of old Wordstar CP/M files to MS-DOS text files. I used in the 80's an Apple IIe computer with a Microsoft CP/M card inside. Sometimes (very few) the software has done errors due to the particular way that Microsoft CP/M card formats the disks but the author has partially fixed this problem. Thanks to the author and all the participating people to maintain updated this useful software.

    The program functionalities are heavily needed, but the codebase is aging without care. Some serious showstopper bugs needed to be dealt - or, at least, workarounded - but currently they are not. But until some alternative raises, it's what I'm using nowadays: bad with it, worst without it!

    I have UAC turned OFF on my Win7 32-bit installation, & still can not get CiderPress to Add files to my CF card.

    I have been using this app with Win7 x64 and previously with Vista x64 with no issues at all. Could be because I have UAC off? I suggest you turn off UAC and try again.
