Re: Re-read bad track step up/down/random

I dumped hundreds of disks now.. and I continue to think that the best solution would be to move at least 5 tracks away and then back on the unreadable track and then reread.. the algorithm could be very simple.. just step 5 tracks forward and then back while reading in the first half of the disk, i...

SDK ?

Do you have or do you plan to release an SDK (in the form of a DLL or static lib) to allow to other applications to take advantage of your Card.. ? A library with command about resetting the card, stepping drive's head, turning motor on/of and of course extracting the raw track data, decoding MFM et...

Re: ADF Write support

Drive is same SFD-321B /LEB T5 I was using for dumping.. it works just fine.. disks are no-brand blue ones DSDD coming as NOS.. some of these fail.. but if I try to format the ones failing with Kryoflux on a real Amiga they fail as well.. on the other hand what is successfully written by Kryoflux is...

Re: Support in WinUAE

Nevertheless, yes, people using whatever product to use working, old magnetic media, to cater their gaming needs... should be locked away! :) No need to torture innocent floppies... so, with the same concept, why using (and torturing) the real "iron" when you can use the emulation.. ? so why bother...

Re: ADF Write support

Thanks for adding ADF write support.. I'm heavily testing.. and for now it seems to be working flawlessly.. there's still the annoying behavior of the "copy protected" disk that is not recognized and the fact I have to "re-read" the disk after the write because the write core is not yet verifying, h...

Re: Support in WinUAE

Not sure. Would assume no. It's a crime actually using original disks in emulation, and severe punishment would be fine with me. So who uses a catweasel should go to Jail? In my understanding (and I could be wrong) you can have WinUAE recognize the card and use its attached floppy as it was a real ...

Support in WinUAE

Will it ever be possible to use Kryoflux and its attached drive as a regular DF0: in WinUAE?
(and maybe have more than one as DF1: etc?)

Re: Read Errors handling

Thanks Mr. Vince. Yes.. it could be it's just a matter to let it spin for some time.. Some of these disks are really in very bad conditions.. maybe some humidity made its way inside (condensation?) however.. some are really unrecoverable, but looking to the magnetic surface you clearly tell why.. de...

Re: Read Errors handling

GUI for sure..! One more point, today I dumped a collection of a friend of mine.. more than 120 disks.. I noticed that in some cases the map of the bad tracks was changing if I tried to red multiple times.. This means that tracks sentenced as "Unreadable" at the next pass were read correctly.. and t...
