Thank you!

I just wanted to say "Thank you!" for inventing the KryoFlux! After solving some issues a few weeks ago (thanks to ZrX again), I successfully dumped about 200 disks so far. The oldest one was from february 1988 - as stated in the source code of what is probably my oldest "app" that survived on disk....

Re: Validated Amiga Disks, but "no flux reversal found"

Can't say if the pin was dirty from the beginning, but I guess latest from the moment I plugged in the first cable (which was the one delivered with the board).

Anyway, I'm glad it works now - been dumping disks since my earlier message, and everything works just fine :)

Re: Validated Amiga Disks, but "no flux reversal found"

. IT WORKS!!! You wouldn't believe the reason, which was quite simple in the end: I think we both were of the opinion that two faulty cables are somewhat very unlikely. So I looked again more thoroughly at the board, because when thinking back to yesterday's testing, I somehow had the feeling that t...

Re: Validated Amiga Disks, but "no flux reversal found"

OK, then I have two faulty cables... one of which was the one that came with the kryoflux board - what are the chances of that to happen?

I will repeat the same test with the 2nd cable as well, and if there are the same results, I will buy a 3rd cable... somehow I will get this Thing to work ;)

Re: Validated Amiga Disks, but "no flux reversal found"

I think I followed your description to the letter, and while I don't have experience with multimeters, I am a longtime model railway builder, so I think I also got the part with the wiring right. - I downloaded the firmware, renamed it and stored it to the correct folder - I disconnected the drive b...

Re: Validated Amiga Disks, but "no flux reversal found"

Thank you very much, this is a very, very outstanding effort of you to support me!

I read & understood your description and I will give it a try in the next days, when I'm not too tired in the evening after work!

Best regards!

Re: Validated Amiga Disks, but "no flux reversal found"

This does sound like the KryoFlux somehow doesn't see anything from the read line suggesting the on board buffering chip might've become faulty. Atleast a multimeter would be handy for checking if the chip is passing data through. Since in the meantime I tried out different combinations of disk dri...

Validated Amiga Disks, but "no flux reversal found"

Hi all, I have validated 3,5" Amiga DOS Disks, and no matter what I do, all I get is the "No flux reversal found" error - can anyone help? (Please note: I already posted a similar request a few weeks ago , but since I now have more detailed information about the setup including pictures and dumps, I...

Re: No flux reversal found (with log)

Thank you,

I will give that a try and post my findings later (probably not today). If I remember correctly, though, I already tried that as well without any success.

I will also post an example Dump next time.

No flux reversal found (with log)

Hi there, no matter what I'm doing, each sector of any Commodore Amiga 3,5" disk fails to read with "No flux reversal found" (see part of the log below). I bought a "new" NEC FD1231H (that later turned out to be slightly dented at one corner, but otherwise seems to be fine), and all the Kryoflux LED...
