Re: Allways: Control command rejected by the device

By PDU you probably mean the PSU? It usually also comes with a floppy cable when you get the premium package, so why did you use a different cable? It might as well be the floppy cable. Also, is this a standard PC drive you are using? You mention a Samsung-321B, but what is the secondary drive you a...

Re: Allways: Control command rejected by the device

If the drive lights up but you don't see any further reaction on the drive, I'd recommend checking the drive and its power. If you have another drive I'd recommend swapping for a quick test...

Re: Post Installation: GUI?

You can use multiple copies of DTC on one system, as you note it does not use the registry, it's (on purpose) a command line application allowing for batch processing, being piped etc. The Java GUI however does store a few settings, so not 100% sure here. But usually one only has one instance of the...

Re: Where do I upload all my preserved IBM PC software?

I never said the last bit or meant what you imply. I just could not find any other reason for the initial anger than to think of not getting something in return for what you contributed. I wish there'd be a team of ten, paid by a caring billionaire or the like, preserving our all digital past. But w...

Re: Where do I upload all my preserved IBM PC software?

Still doesn't change the math. SPS can't enforce people donating their time to analysing dumps. It's not-profit with very limited funding. No one gets paid for the work done. Pepople dump and analyse in their spare time, picking dumps they want to work on. Would it help if I'd reach out to the peopl...

Re: Where do I upload all my preserved IBM PC software?

Maybe you want to reconsider your wording as it sounds like there's some obligation here. People are doing this voluntarily on both sides. It has turned out that the sheer volume of user contributions is more than SPS can handle atm. It's not satisfying, but a reality. If you know someone knowledgea...

Re: Where do I upload all my preserved IBM PC software?

Everyone has to obey to laws. US law is different from European law, and some people do not care at all. Technically there's no abandonware. It's copyrights that expire. In Europe it's void 70 years after the last creative person of a joint effort work has died (for a film such a person is a directo...

Re: can Kryoflux opensource DTC (windows and linux)

Feedback is always welcome, and whatever you write here is seen by the devs. However, we won't be having an open source discussion here. It's a ship that has long sailed for this project. If there's a sane reason, things can be arranged without making this open source - there's not just black and wh...

Re: News update?

Since G64 works as the interim solution our resources are spent on dumping and ingesting; it does not change anything atm: People can dump and play while at the same time we can do what's most urgent... dump. Conversion can always happen later, but since the floppies are dying...
