Re: Req: Be able to select which side of disk to capture

Ok, that's because Amiga disks are always twosided, so you can capture raw data from selected side (-g0 -i), but not do analysis on selected side (-g0 -i5) alone.

The -g side switch is only effective up to the next -i format switch.

Re: Req: Be able to select which side of disk to capture

You can select side with -g0/1 before -i5.

Re: 8" disk imaging

If the disks seem to be in good condition I'd just do a dump of first couple of tracks and look at the scatter plot of the UI. Two horizontal lines would point to FM and three lines to MFM formatted disks to begin with.

Re: Imaging hard sector floppies

Well in that case you needed to alter the image. With the "software scheme" (on some platforms and especially with hard drives this behavior is reality) the image stays intact and is accessible as is.

Re: Imaging hard sector floppies

Interesting system. Even tho the disks are physically single sided, 40 tracks, 10 sectors/track, 512 bytes/sector, they seem to be handled at software level as 50 tracks, 8 sectors/track, 512 bytes/sector. Example working Cpmtools diskdef-parameters: diskdef exidy seclen 512 tracks 50 sectrk 8 block...

Re: Installing KryoFlux in Windows 8 / 10

These should be split into separate thread. But KF has no trouble sampling these kind of disks. 3.5" HD media is fine, but 3.5" ED media (these were not in very common use) uses such high frequency that it can't be sampled properly anymore. Since KF samples at the flux level headers, checksums and s...

Re: Drives confirmed working with KryoFlux

Old IBM 5,25" drive - Type 0386-001 - Can it work? A while ago I bought an old 5,25" drive for not too much money, aiming to try it on Kryoflux. It's supposed to be a standard 1.2mb drive but ... Since I haven't been able to locate it on the net anywhere, I can't be sure... Now, I have been trying ...

Re: 8" Disks encoding?

Can you upload the raw files of one dump to a sendspace or some similar place and post or PM the link so I can check if the format is the same or if I need to write some different decoding?

Re: Imaging hard sector floppies

Ok the disk is indeed a flippy.

IF your drive has been flippymodified you could dump without flipping the disk. But assuming it is not, flipping is luckily possible.

Re: Imaging hard sector floppies

You can upload them to a temporary place like sendspace.com for example and post the link here, or post it as a private message if the data is something sensitive.
