Ok, so what does the output look like if you go via the command line dumping some ordinary C64 floppy:

DTC -b-8 -ftest_ -i -y -g2 -k2 -i6 -l8

Re: Is this suitable for flippy modding ?

Pin 33 is cut from the modded drive so that it's not connected to the other ground pins anymore?

The modded drive is connected to the cable before the cut wire?

And the 3.5" drive is connected to the cable after the cut wire?

It should work simply by cutting/removing pin 33 from the 3.5" drive itself so there's no contact with it and the cable.

Re: Is this suitable for flippy modding ?

If you have two drives connected the other drive will ground the track 0 bypass signal preventing it from working unless the line is cut from that drive.

When using commandline there is a switch -d# that selects the drive number. You have to jumper everything correctly tho.

Re: Is this suitable for flippy modding ?

About the track 0 extension... head.jpg Make sure the extending part on the side pointed by the green arrow is not made of just plain black plastic such as tape as that can often pass infrared light. Important one: On the side pointed by the red arrow, make sure what you glue/stick to the original p...

Re: Is this suitable for flippy modding ?

As long as you avoid scratching the inside of the brass part you'll be good. It needs to be absolutely smooth.

400k Disk Copy dumps with and without tags
800k disks from imagefiles

Re: Write a Mac 400/800K sector image using Kryoflux

Getting a neat Macintosh SE recently I was in a need for some system disks. I couldn't get the pce/hxc combination to work so I ended up writing my own tool that creates KryoFlux raw files out of single- and doublesided disk images. Currently working on Disk Copy .image-files to write correct "tags"...

Re: Kryoflux stopped working for two sided disks

When doing smd rework on a board the usual method is to shield surrounding parts with aluminum foil.
