Re: Best way to backup Amiga floppies

Fair enough I guess ..I have perhaps assumed too much. I understand why protected disks and IPFs for those disks are not available publicly ..and I guess if cloning CP disks was possible it would be open to abuse. nonetheless from my own perspective I just wish it was easy to back up my genuine flop...

Re: Best way to backup Amiga floppies

Reading the comments ..I get the impression that my KF board is 'capable' of what I wanted ..but so far at least the software does not support cloning of protected disks.
A real shame as this was one of the reasons I purchased it.

Re: Amiga Floppies ..what am I doing wrong ?

Thanks for replying David .. I've posted a request for help in the second thread of the 2 links you provided. I'm guessing I have to use the command line interface and not the GUI if I am to achieve my objective.. But I'm cluless in this regard. If all else fails ..is there a way to obtain IPF files...

Re: Best way to backup Amiga floppies

Hi .. I'm in exactly the situation being discussed here.

I have tried ...

Re: Amiga Floppies ..what am I doing wrong ?

Now I'm just confused .. I thought that Kryoflux just dumped raw images of the magnetic flux from the floppy ...thus in was possible to write an exact clone back to a new floppy regardless of the origin and format type ? and in the process preserve the data for posterity ..? In other words ..the who...

Amiga Floppies ..what am I doing wrong ?

After much effort I finally repaired my old Amiga 500 ...and some of my original games played just fine.. I then dug out my workbench 1.3.3 disks and oh oh ..bit rot. I then began a hunt for replacements ..which I now have and they boot fine. This of course put me in panic mode ..and I'm now looking...

Re: Dumping Apple floppies ?

Rather than go to the trouble of getting an emulator installed ..I wrote the dumped raw images back to empty floppies with wildewutz and tried them one at a time in my AppleIIe .. of the 10 I dumped not one booted .. so I guess I messed up either with the dumping process ..or the write back process....
