From $3F00 (offset counting from the beginning of the file), the following text can be found:
"SUPER DOS 1551 BY CSORY IN 1992."


Description
From Solder's site:
"A new system for the 1551-floppy by CSORY. You can use normal disks with 844 Blocks. This DOS is compatible to all disks and to normal DOS. But disks with 844 Blocks can only read and write in floppys with Super-DOS. Super-DOS is Freeware. You can download the burnfile from my BBS."

To use the file in YAPE:
- Settings / Drive 8 Setup (or press ALT+Q)
- Choose 1551 drive emulation [CPU level/compatibility mode]
- Check "Use this custom ROM image instead of build-in one:"
- Browse to the CRT file
- Click OK to save the settings and close the dialog.

Usage:
OPEN15,8,15
PRINT#15,"N0:NAME,ID+"
CLOSE15

Adding the "+" means 40 tracks (=840 Blocks). The disk id will be 2S (instead of the normal 2A).
