Re: Raspberry Pi anyone?

Actually, I'd be very interested in just a command-line only compile of the kryoflux tools for the raspberry pi, I could easily see me using those to resurrect my autoloader to replace the arduino/canon-camera/laptop with just a raspberry-pi/pi-camera .. Might need to level shift the sensors / motor...

Re: Kryoflux automated disk imager =) v2.

The video for this got linked from Hackaday earlier this week, then gizmodo australia, boingboing, make, geek.com, a handful of french / dutch / spanish sites, and went from under a hundred views to over 40 thousand.. with around 1/4 of those following the links back to the blog posts on how it was ...

Re: Kryoflux automated disk imager =) v2.

I'm just coming to a close on imaging all my floppy disks.. About 250 disks per 12hr period, non stop, reading disks continuously, saving to Stream & ADF Over 2500 disks read at this point, and less than 100 left to go. (It's going to be odd to have a weekend unaccompanied by the chunking noise of d...

Re: "Device does not accept mode command"

Over 2500 disks later.. I haven't narrowed it down much.. also have been rather slack & not checked the LEDs on the repeats.. but I have found that the sequence of power up seems to affect how likely it is to occur. If I power up the drive after the kryoflux, then it'll happen within 20 disks or so,...

"Device does not accept mode command"

Hi.. While chewing thru many disks with my automated disk robot.. I've noticed occasionally that the Kryoflux ends one disk, but when asked to process the next, fails with "Device does not accept mode command". This is infrequent, and seems to occur after reading at least 20+ disks in a row.. It the...

Re: Kryoflux automated disk imager =) v2.

Finally.. almost a year since posting the idea of autograbbing photo's of the disks as they are grabbed (http://forum.kryoflux.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=122)... I'm done. The box is now able to chew thru around 75 disks per load, and grabs an 8megapixel image of each disk as it exits, storing each dis...

Re: Kryoflux automated disk imager =) v2.

Still working on this.. the mechanism seemed to be designed to tolerate unlabelled disks, or properly labelled disks.. as opposed to the large collection of 'coverdisks with 2 more labels at funny angles' that I have.. so some disks just wouldn't eject cleanly.. till I figured out that tilting the m...

Kryoflux automated disk imager =) v2.

Some of you may remember my lego floppy disk autoloader from a while back.. Well, Lego just doesn't have the tolerances required for doing this stuff constantly.. And then I got interested in Arduinos, and then I noticed a cheap old floppy duplicator on ebay, and decided this would be a good time to...

Re: WebCam / batch processing =)

Heh.. it was a fun build.. the rebuild improved it a bit. Once you reflash the rcx (the lego brain) over to run lejos, you gain the ability to communicate to it live from a pc while it's running (although coding the rcx logic in the cut down version of java can be .. entertaining ;-) ) With lego min...
