That's why I'll be testing it on the real machine this weekend.

I've used wav files generated from cas files to load games on Dragons from my iPod classic (that doesn't have remote capability) on several events and never had a problem.

Of course, it may be just how the Dragon loading routine works.

I'm not trying to say that cas files are adequate for preservation, because they are obviously not, but we may find some interesting information that could help improve our understanding of these machines and its emulation.
