Re: Strange problem with 3.5" drive "clicking"

Is the drive directly powered (and not through the KF board)?

Re: Kryoflux Hardware not detected

Well no more replies. Guess that qualifies as "got it working somehow but don't feel I need to report back" maybe?

Will need to re-check, did not quite get the meaning of PM without re-reading this here... As brightcaster writes - can you make sure the link/archive is good?

Re: Will hard sector support be coming to non-Windows platforms?

This has been noted as a feature request and I'll let our devs know to give it some prio, if possible.

Re: Kryoflux Hardware not detected

Greetings, the device connection problems are getting ugly more and more the newer the windows 10 build is. Now windows doesn`t allow me any more to exchange the driver manually from Boss to Kryo.

Re: New KryoFlux board worked then doesn't, sort of?

Quick info re naming scheme... there are 0-x cylinders (usually 0-39, 0-79; most drives can address and read a few more, but the standard is 40 or 80 (counting from 0-39 and 0-79)). A cylinder has one or two sides (if e.g. the drive has dual heads). A track is one side of a cylinder, so a disk that ...

Re: G64 demo "Bounty Bob Strikes Back" problems.

This game not working is an alignment problem - so either your disk is not empty before your write to it ("degaussing"), your PC drive for writing is not perfectly aligned or the drive on the C64's side is not not aligned. This is one of the most troubling protections and was chosen on pur...

Re: Oh dear, did I fry my KryoFlux?

Just in case anyone wonders: These connectors were placed for power users who might have very special needs and are willing to sacrifice the board (if anything goes wrong) because of that special need. E.g. 8" drives might need special care power rail - wise. Keep in mind you are using steampun...
