Re: Kryoflux board inside a PC?

Thanks your reply.

Taking into account your comments I think I'll have the USB cable coming out of the front of the machine and plug it into one of the USB ports when needed!

I'll update this once I have things working!

Thanks again!

Kryoflux board inside a PC?

I have a PC built inside a full tower case. Given the number of drive slots in the case I have direct need to house the KryoFlux board in a separate enclosure with its drives. Is there any reason why I cannot have the KryoFlux inside the PC case in a manner why it is connected all the time? I know t...

Re: Floppy drive selector board

I like this idea. Sometimes I do actually use my KryoFlux to write an image to media for a disk I need.

I have four drives I connect though: 5.25" 40 track, 5.25" 80 track, 5.25" HD and 3.5" HD.

I'd buy something along these lines.

Re: Two beginners questions!

Thank you. Tinkering further I took a .IMG file supplied by a friend of an MS-DOS 1.25 boot disk for a Sanyo MBC-550. I use the HxC software to convert it into a Kryoflux RAW and view it in Aufit and it shows up thus: 1.png If I then write the KryoFlux RAW image to a disk using WildeWutz, then read ...

Re: Two beginners questions!

Could anyone generate some kind of useable extended G64 image for me please?

It really doesn't matter whether the content is meaningful. I'll delete it once the drive tests are done.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Two beginners questions!

Well I'm now trying things using three different drives:

The Teac FD-55GFR (HD), FD-55F (80 track) and a Fuji 5451A0K.

I've used the Fuji drive and imaged an original IBM DOS 3.3 disk - but I don't have a machine at this location that can use said image so my confidence isn't improving :)

Re: Two beginners questions!

Thanks for the response Mr IFW.

I fully get your point. Is there any specific image which would be good for test purposes? I.e. something I could write, read back and compare or the like that would do a particularly good job of testing my reading/writing drives?

Re: Two beginners questions!

I've progressed a little bit! I connected my KryoFlux board directly to a TEAC FD-55GFR drive. What I did perhaps wasn't such a good idea and only worked partially: I used the HxC software to convert a BBC Micro .DSD file into a KryoFlux steam, and then wrote the image to a floppy using the KryoFlux...

Re: Two beginners questions!

The Cumana drive is a quad density. Formats disks to around 800Kb on the BBC.
