Re: Different MFM image when reading from stream files

Why would setting the density line affect the interpretation of the captured data? Is that setting really used by the software (rather than by the FDD)? (I usually toggle the density line after each capture.)

Re: Different MFM image when reading from stream files

For finding out why DTC decodes data differently when reading from the disk drive vs. reading from the stream file created in parallel with decoding while reading from the disk drive, the floppy disk would be required. Anyway, I'll try to find a track that doesn't contain sensitive data. BTW, this i...

Re: Missing *T warning

Ah, having both extra data and a track number mismatch is encoded as "*HT", not "*H *T", as could be devined from the documentation. Perhaps the GUI is labouring under the same misapprehension.

Different MFM image when reading from stream files

I've read a floppy disk with both "Kryoflux stream files, preservation" and "MFM sector image" enabled. There are 7 instances of MFM: <unformatted> in the log file (for 7 different tracks, that is, no retries). Creating another MFM sector image from the stream files created in the step above results...

Missing *T warning

According to the documentation, there should be a *T warning in the DTC log file if the track number is not correct. Unfortunately, DTC 2.6 for Linux sometimes omits the *T warning: 14.1 : MFM: OK*, trk: 014[012], sec: 18, *HT +7 Therefore I got only Hs (no Ts) in the GUI and thought the capture was...

SPS decoder library for Linux

To make the CAPSImage library work for Linux (building from spsdeclib_5.1_source.zip), I had to replace

Code: Select all

__attribute__((aligned)
in C2Comm.h with

Code: Select all

__attribute__((aligned(1))
as we need minimum alignment, not maximum alignment.
