Re: Converting Ctraw files

Hello :) do a raw preservation dump of the disc, not ctraw. Dowoad the hxc floppy emulator software from the hxc website and load the first track of the kryoflux raw image, this will cause it to load the whole thing. Export it as HFE. This should hopefully work assuming it doesn't use weak bits in t...

Re: New to KryoFlux, what can (and can't) it do?

I use dtc to create bbc micro files all the time :) - ssd is single sided,FM 80 track, 256byte sector, 10 sectors/track. dsd is the same, but with the sides interleaved.

Re: Victor / Sirius Capable ?

Just for the record here, (sorry, only spotted this now) - unfortunately no, the kryoflux can't write Victor floppies - even in stream copy mode they're not reliable. I've caught up with the OP on a different forum and am making some boot disks using a victor (alas only way at present).

Re: "No disk in drive"

I use a straight cable with my Amstrad FD-1 3" drive and have no issues with the motor not spinning? Have you disconnected the 5v connector from the 34pin / 26pin board inside the 3" drive? Yes, I removed the 5V connector :D - no desire to fry anything! Using my straight through cable I could calib...

Re: "No disk in drive"

Are you sure the motor's spinning? I use a straight through floppy cable with mine for 5.25 and 3.5" drives, but it didn't get on with my Amstrad 3" drive - it would calibrate, but it wasn't actually running the motor, hence the no disk inserted issues. I ended up having to dig out one with a twist ...

Re: Victor 9000 Disks

OK, I've got some other original discs (that I know work as well) - alas, not that DOS or CP/M disk as original. I've a dos 1.25. Is there somewhere I can stick it that's convenient? Just given the drive heads a nice clean. Pg 90+ of the tech reference manual goes into some detail on the format: htt...

Re: Victor 9000 Disks

Crumbs. Not sure what's going on there then. I've just tested both of those discs back in the Victor (they're actually "new" copies made on just opened media). I can read and verify every sector perfectly on both discs, so it looks like it's the drive on the kryoflux (although I've just been dumping...
