You may just type "mojave usb problems" into google search to see how many other usb devices got problems...

Re: Installing KryoFlux in Windows 8 / 10

If it was the red LED only the firmware was not loaded into the board. Good to see that your plan b went right!

Re: Installing KryoFlux in Windows 8 / 10

Are the LEDs on the board flashing or is that the red LED only is on? If the LEDs are flashing it may help to disconnect the drive from the power supply and reconnect it...

Re: Mac: USB endpoint not found

It's not the mac version of the kryoflux software which is broken but the USB stack of the mac OS!!!

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

That's more than expected! If there are text files on the floppy it should be possible to find out the skew or interleave if there is any. There are also differences in track/side organization possible which can be sorted out best by the -oo parameter of DTC when creating the sector image file. You ...

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

CPM tools works with mfm images. Yes you should know the origin of the floppy (e.g. the machine it was written with). Otherwise you may upload the RAW stream of one of the floppies to be examined here...

Re: Help with dump

There's no need to redump. DTC can convert the raw stream done with a 1.2 MB drive to a 360k mfm image! But that will not help with the copy protection.....

Re: Help with dump

Track 4 looks like the copy protection for my eyes (microprose type 1 with overlapping sectors), but I'm not a real expert on that... But whats obvious is that the tracks from 05 to 39 have an additional sector 10 (with sector id 00) which ends almost spot on with the index pulse! This sector looks ...

Re: Write back dumped disk

You have to fiddle with the -ww, -wt and -wb parameters as the default automatics of precompensation and bias are not coded for 8" drives I guess. But to be honest I have no idea what values to use for these drives... You sometimes get better copies (at least on 5.25") with using -we2 (wipe). You ma...
