Re: Orange box with H in it

It's all in the manual:http://www.kryoflux.com/download/kryoflux_manual.pdf

Page 18, line 2:

*H Header extra data was found. Data is hidden in unused parts of the block header. Sector images can’t hold such data; warning only.

Re: Complete Newb has questions..

Yes of course you have to set the jumpers for 2 drives acording to the manual (see pictures on page 5). And yes you have to choose the drive from the menu (if using the gui).

Re: Complete Newb has questions..

Yellow boxes marked with H are good tracks as long as its a user written disk! It only shows that single sectors have been modified after the initial format (which is unusual for duplicator written disks).

Re: Why is there a limit on retry counts?

This coincides with my experiences! When it finaly works after 50 retries it works better and better after that! First with 10 attempts, after that with the usual 5 and at last immediately with the first atempt. I agree, it looks as if there is some layer of dirt on the surface, which is slowly worn...

Re: Errors when using CT raw or Kryoflux stream files mode

Simply said: You can't do a checksum in raw or stream file mode, because you don't know if checksum errors a caused by read errors or copy protection! But you can can create format guided raw or stream files, where you select multiple outputs (for example raw and AmigaDOS). In this case the AmigaDOS...
