Welcome to the Wonderfully Ancient World of
The C128 and C64 CP/M 80 Links Page
This page has just about everything you should need to get started with
CP/M on the C128 and C64, or provides links to it.
Just for Starters
Note: The Aztec C compiler above also has a d81 CP/M system disk image included.
Note: The CPMEXTRA.D64 disk image far below is part of "collection 2" linked above.

Nate's How to copy files from a C64 disk image to a CP/M disk image
Download the CP/M files that you want to
transfer to CP/M disks. Use your .D64 editor of choice to
copy the CP/M files onto a standard, blank .D64 image (typical Commodore
Now boot your C128 Vice Emulator into CP/M mode (using a standard
CP/M disk of course), download the disk below and put put it into drive 9
(or B: as it were).
This holds the key to get your CP/M file on your standard CBM
disk to a CP/M disk. In this disk image is a little gem called RDCBM.
Using it (after a little bit of practice), you can now copy binary files
from the CBM disk image to a CP/M disk image where they will be quite happy.
Just change to drive B, and execute RDCBM. This will load a menu that lets
you copy files from CBM disks to CP/M disks. You'll put the regular .D64
disk containing the CP/M file in the A drive and a suggested blank CP/M disk
in drive B, then choose these menu options:
First, set your drives. [S] does this. It will ask for "Letter of CBM
drive: " - use A.
Next, it will ask for letter of CP/M drive; choose B.
Now it's time to copy. Select [B} Binary CBM -> CP/M Copy.
You will be asked for the name of the CBM file (actually your CP/M file) and
will need to type it in exactly.
You will then be asked for the CP/M File Name (Drive B): - this is the name
that the file on A: will be copied to.
You'll have to copy the files one by one if you have multiple CP/M files to
Hope this helps!
