Re: Is my Kryoflux dead?

The TEST jumper info was relayed from me.

So did that actually bring the board back for a moment?

And what was the reason for the board suddenly becoming fried? Shortcircuit?

Any detailed pics of what components got damaged?

There was one other I can't remember, tho the accuracy of its mechanism might've been a bit questionable. Panasonic can be modified without expensive tools, but the others require oscilloscope and profe...

Re: Timeout while waiting for device initialization

Just to be sure, the flash erase jumper is not closed? And possible power rail select jumper is on the outer 5V position? If the green led stays permanently on and doesn't fade in and out after the first issued command something is wrong (corrupted firmware file, replace from the original package......

Re: 8" CDC/MPI drive says max track is 41 ??

We have dumped several 8" disks with 77 tracks without any issues, tho that was done via command line only. Can't actually say if the GUI really has some problems doing this as I never use it.

Re: Newbie: Where to start to read with which I have to start with?

KF absolutely requires the index to have accurate count on the track length. Analysing track length from data alone could be erraneous depending what the track contains, and the actual start of a track would be anyones quess.

Re: Kryoflux + Mitsumi D353M3: previous experience?

The power connector is not needed on the KF as it is powered via USB.

It first seems the software somehow fails to talk to the board. But yellow/green flashing means the software has managed to upload firmware to KF and it is waiting for commands.

What kind of output does dtc -c2 produce?

While using Windows 10 I'm assuming you are facing the same incorrect driver issues as few of the previous posters here under the Support-category?

Re: Atari ST dumps

Copied ST disks you can likely dump to a emulator supported disk imagefile quickly just by using the MFM sector image -format in the GUI or via command line with:

DTC -fdiskname.st -i4 -e79 -l8

Re: DTC -c2 > Device Not Found

The control command rejected along with maxtrack 0 without a drive/power is just that. The hardware works but couldn't get a response from a drive since it didn't exist or wasn't powered up.
