Re: Random bad sectors when dumping an Amiga disk with Samsung SFD-321B

How did you check that? Is that normal behavior or faulty? You can see it in the track view mode if you use the HxC tool. For example on track 63 side 1 of the SFD-321-T6_1 stream. Look at the blue line on top of the view where after sector 11 there are two pulses befor sector 1 starts again. On ot...

Re: Random bad sectors when dumping an Amiga disk with Samsung SFD-321B

Actually the panasonics give two index pulses (first is 4ms to early) on certain tracks, which confuses HxC but not DTC...

Re: Random bad sectors when dumping an Amiga disk with Samsung SFD-321B

For me it looks, as if there are certain tracks not perfectly index alligned with the panasonic drives. The HxC analyzer marks them red while dtc still creates valid adfs because it doesn't need them perfectly alligned. Still the teacs don't behave this way and read the index pulses in line. Is ther...

Re: Floppy drive selector board

If you don't want to use both devices at the same time and simply want to switch between devices (without changing the cables) instead, you can turn the corresponding usb-port on and off: http://migueleonardortiz.com.ar/linux/learning-how-to-disable-specific-usb-devices-by-their-ports-in-linux/1645 ...

Re: Installing KryoFlux in Windows 8 / 10

@Dominus The Kryoflux hardware first comes up as USB device "Atmel Corp. at91sam SAMBA bootloader" to get the firmware loaded. After that it changes name to "www.softpress.org KryoFlux DiskSystem" and the LEDs start flashing. So if you have the firmware allready loaded (via your guest-system) and yo...

Re: Kryoflux on Virtual machine

It works so far, but you have to keep in mind that you have to (virtually) connect the kryoflux twice! First you have to connect it as "Atmel Corp. at91sam SAMBA bootloader" to get the firmware loaded. After that it changes name to "www.softpress.org KryoFlux DiskSystem" to give you access to the co...

Re: G64 with mastering information?

It was verry common to use theese so called PETSCII codes below $20 in the disknames or filenames to "hide" them. PETSCII Codes $00-$1F and $80-$9F are control codes and printing them will cause a change in screen layout or behavior, not an actual character displayed! If you look at the directory wi...
