Re: New dillema... possible bad transistors all along?

My voltmeter offers determination of amplification of a transistor, so it is easy to detect if the transistor works correctly (gain should be somewhat between 30 and 1000). This is a NPN transistor with E connected to the pin just on the nose, the medium pin as B and the last pin as C. If you are no...

Re: Using KryoFlux with Linux

Just a guess... The current directory is not in the search path on Linux by default, so you have to specify e.g. ./dtc -c2 to do the initalisation test. You need to have opened a shell before typing this, also sometimes called a "Terminal" by some distributions. And you must have changed to the dire...

Track 0 retry problem on flippy drive

I noticed a minor problem with a flippy modified drive: When KF decides to retry track 0 side 0 at a flippy read, stepping outside to track -1 to realign the head wont work. Thus you must specify an even retry count with DTC in such a case (eg -t2), so the last innerwards stepping try is successful....

Re: Control command rejected by the device

Does the drive spin when using -c2 ?
If not, 5 V are present, but 12 V missing.

Just thought of another thing: Is there a need for the driver to be signed code on Win-x64? (asked to SPS)

Re: Control command rejected by the device

Have you tried to first power the Kryoflux by USB and then the drive? The other way wont work.

Procedure for punching a second index hole on a 5.25" disk

Because Mr. Vince mentioned this on the FAQ, i propose that the correct procedure is mentioned too for people really having that idea, because otherwise the disk may be ruined. Prerequisites: 1. Make a template of cardboard in the dimensions of a 5.25" disk with a hole where the round index hole bel...

Re: How to get DTC working on Linux?

After having set up Kryoflux in a virtual Windows machine under Linux, the native version with dtc32 works now too. No idea what I have made differently.

How to get DTC working on Linux?

On executing the step-by-step-instruction supplied by the sheet, I get a "Device control command failed" on executing dtc32 -c2 (dtc64 -c2 crashes with a kernel oops). The red led on the board is lit with the usb plugged in, and the green and yellow leds fade to black and to full light alternatingly...

Re: IPF and Openness

Again, the FSF's lawyers would disagree with you; that clause is for the distribution of GPL code on a medium (eg a CD) with non-GPL code. A disk controller is not a program on its own. It is as much an independent program as the display drivers in the Linux kernel, and there is not only the view o...
