Re: Weird disk format

Hi there, I have an additional question. Since I have a somewhat tricky format that is not supported by DTC, is there a way of remastering the stream and writing it back to the same medium (3" disk)? From reading other threads, I figured out that just writing back the stream will result in the ...

Re: Weird disk format

Hi, Thanks for the info. Yes, I realized that it is only a single side and that I need to flip the disk to preserve both sides. At least now I know that it is just a weird format and not just me making stupid settings in DTC. I still need to read up on how to interpret the Kryoflux stream format. I ...

Re: Weird disk format

Thanks for your reply David, By Double density 500kB is suppose you mean 250kB per side. I have put a SD2IEC converter in the PDC Clipper, conveniently tugged away in the screen compartment and configured as a secondary drive (9).

Re: Chinon FR-506 - flippy?

Hi, I did the flippy mod on the FR-506. There is a significant difference between the track 0 sensor between this drive and the Panasonic (JU-475). The FR-506's sensor is PNP photo transistor on the a high side, where the Panasonic has a PNP transistor switching the low side. This effectively means ...
