Re: Korgutils floppy coding

There was/is a commercial program running on dos which works with theese floppies. So the data format must be WD1772 compatible and the kryoflux hardware can read anything that was written with that controller...

Re: Imaging hard sector floppies

Thanks for the pictures! Well, what shall I say. Theese holes are more or less home made! You can see that some of them are not exactly in the right position, some are marked with a pencil, and some of the floppies are labeld as single sided. So the additional holes are not made by the factory. Also...

Re: Imaging hard sector floppies

Whow, that's something really new for me. I have never ever seen any hardsectored 5,25" floppies with 2 index holes in the sleeve jacket! Are there any hints for the manufacturer or type on the label?

Re: Drives confirmed working with KryoFlux

Once again I have to correct myself! It's not a matter of inverted signals with the IBM PS2 drives but a change in position of pullup resistors. The PS2 floppy drives have some pullup resistors on board which are usually found on the controllers side. So they may work with some modification.... http...

Re: Drives confirmed working with KryoFlux

As far as I remember IBM inverted some control signals! So it's not done with a simple adapter or twisting some wires...

It's the HxCFloppyEmulator Tool... https://hxc2001.com/download/floppy_drive_emulator/HxCFloppyEmulator_soft.zip https://hxc2001.com/download/floppy_drive_emulator/index.html It doesn't matter if you don't have the Hxc hardware! You can load and visualize the KryoFlux data just by loading the first ...

Re: Intellec MDS-80

It's getting slightly worse instead of better! I would recommend to stop cleaning! This is a visual output of the first attempt: http://davidkrause.de/First.png And this is your new attempt after the intense cleaning: http://davidkrause.de/Second.png As you can see from the red dots it is no more cl...

Re: Intellec MDS-80

Unfortunately the DOS tool can't decode the files from the third disk, as the directory usually is located on the second track which contains no valid data....
