Re: 5.25 inch, 360k IBM PC DOS gives 720k images?

One of the biggest things, I think, is that the order of the parameters matters. Check out page 18/19 of the Kryoflux manual, and it outlines this, and I've pasted the relevant bits at the end of this message. So, I think that your command line should be something more like: dtc -ftest.img -t1 -z2 -...

First things first... let's get user-scripting sorted out, and then creating IPFs for Apple 2 will be a streamlined process.
Agreed... It's probably past time I acquainted myself with the IPF library, huh? :)

Re: Viewing Apple ][ disk images

Thanks for the CiderPress link; I'll check that out for some other projects. Is there any current path for going from KF to Apple .nib files? I'm curious about the state of Apple emulation, etc..

Re: Aligning 3.5" drives info

Sorry, my information presumed a particular level of knowledge. This is a good place to read about the process: http://www.bombjack.org/commodore/hardware/Dymek_Alignment_Diskette_Instructions.pdf The alignment disks I've used come from Accurite: http://www.accurite.com/AAD.html, but the instruction...

Aligning 3.5" drives info

Just a quick brain-dump of things I've learned recently while figuring out how to align 3.5" drives. Can't guarantee I'll be able to get these all formally written down any time soon, so thought I'd put them here for others to use. This information is known-applicable to the Samsung SFD-321 series o...

Re: c1571 dumping settings for .D71 creating

I worked with you on the 1581 settings, and the additional parameters are:

-oo4

So, assuming a file input, it would be something like this:

dtc -m1 -finput -i0 -foutput.d81 -oo4 -i4 -l8

Not sure that this will work with a 1571, though.

Cheers!

How to image Commodore 1581 disks

Wanted to share a tip for imaging 1581 disks; I know there's been a request or two about how to make .d81 images. A big thanks to IFW for helping sort this out. It turns out that KryoFlux and DTC have the ability to make .d81 images built in, by simply adding one image geometry parameter (-oo4), and...
