Re: Log all DTC output to a file

I'm not sure what you mean by "you get no progress until the very end of the operation"...

>> It would be ideal if the output could be both printed to the console and optionally logged to a text file.

Is 'tee' any use to you?:

Code: Select all

dtc -fxxx -i0 2>&1 | tee output.log

Re: Drive modified for flippy dumping WITHOUT track-zero byp

And finally: - Push rear bush (7) into head assembly as far as travel (barely 2mm) will allow. - File down rear of head assembly (8), nearly down to the bush (make sure you don't file the bush - you'll wreck it). Take GREAT care to not file or damage the alignment key/spike on the upper surface. - O...

Re: Drive modified for flippy dumping WITHOUT track-zero byp

Continuing: 04-bottom.jpg - Remove the roll-pin (3, shown removed) that restricts the rotation of the stepper motor. Do not unscrew anything on the stepper motor to do this. Instead, use narrow nosed pliers to slide the pin out until it hits the motor body, then twist it out completely. This will de...

Re: Drive modified for flippy dumping WITHOUT track-zero byp

The NEC FD1157C may be one of the easier drives to modify because: - Little filing is required, most of which is f...

Re: C64 dumping

Also, someone made a slightly different drive modification - which may be simpler if you no longer want to keep the original drive functionality, e.g. only use the drive for flippy dumping. I'll try to get him to post about it. You might be referring to me - I've posted some information in this thr...

Drive modified for flippy dumping WITHOUT track-zero bypass

A few months ago, I modified a NEC FD1157C for flippy dumping without using the track-zero bypass. I'll post more details about the hardware mod later, but the gist of it is: - The drive was modified in the "usual" way so that the head assembly can physically travel to track position -8 - Instead of...
