No, I can make "normal" high-level writes, like SAVE/DSAVE, just fine;
and I can write anything from my laptop. I am guessing this is a
limitation of the firmware, although I haven't dug into it.
I was hoping CBM-Command could deal with D64 files to replicate what I
was trying to do, but as far as I can tell that isn't the case.
