Re: Modified Drive (old method,) move to positive on failure

It should be visible from the underside aswell extending half a cm or so towards the spindle. In atleast on modded drive I've seen black plastic tape used which is quite transparent to infrared light and failed randomly.

Re: Modified Drive (old method,) move to positive on failure

No, there needs to be a piece glued to the sensor arm ALONG WITH the electronic patch.

Re: Modified Drive (old method,) move to positive on failure

The black piece of plastic that moves between the track 0 sensor. It should have an extension glued to it that keeps the sensor blocked while at negative tracks.

Re: Modified Drive (old method,) move to positive on failure

If the bit extending the sensor blocking part is missing you'll have problems.

Re: Modified Drive (old method,) move to positive on failure

Ah indeed. Is there anything glued to the black plastic part that slides between the sensor?

Re: Apple II DOS 5.25 in. floppy disks

Disk itself contains short 6502 code and warning that the disk is not bootable at the first sector. The rest of the disk seem to be filled with text. Everything except the 6502 code is XORed with 0x80.

Re: TA ScreenTyper 5.25 in. floppies

diskdef tast
seclen 512
tracks 80
sectrk 10
blocksize 2048
maxdir 64
skew 0
boottrk 2
os 2.2
end

I also had to manually hexedit the directory to remove spaces from the names or the files aren't found by cpmcp.

Re: TA ScreenTyper 5.25 in. floppies

I tried some that had suitable parameters and also tried creating a custom but no luck yet. Should look into what the skew and os parameters really do.
