Re: Help with dump

Writing with DTC is only possible from one index pulse to the next index pulse. And the index pulse is still locked to the drives rpm and will come up when ever the rotation of the floppy reaches its position. Whereas the datastream to be written is locked to the crystal on the kryoflux board. So t...

Re: Will hard sector support be coming to non-Windows platforms?

It would certainly help with this feature request if I had access to ''real'' hard-sectored stream images where the data content is actually hard-sectored data. What was used during the development of the read feature was various hard-sectored disk types, that were overwritten by systems that don't ...

Re: Powering drive.

As you guessed, you really should use a separate PSU for your drives.

The stream dump in the new archive is identical to the bad one.

Re: Combining interleaved disk sides to a single image

Also just in case it might help someone: take a look at the -oo parameter
Using that it is possible to generate any kind of side/track order in the image file automatically.

Re: Question about a copy protection, Contra Copy

Just post a stream dump of the protection track.

Assuming you made a copy of the track KF should definitely not care about its contents at all, but maybe it's not index synced, e,g, last sector written over index, and that would only work when written from a mastering format like IPF currently.

Re: Weird disk format

Not sure how relevant it is here, but CBM DOS - unlike pretty much anything else - uses logical track numbers starting with 1, not 0, e.g. that's how you end up with CBM track 18 on physical track 34 on a 80 track drive. At least that's what it does with a C1541 drive - not sure what's the case here...

Re: Initial install: control command rejected by the device

The device wouldn't be found if the driver were present, so it's probably fine, but you should definitely see LEDs flashing on the board once you try this command as mr.vince said.

However, does the drive have its own power supply?
You will get similar messages if e.g. the drive is not powered.
