Re: Why is there a limit on retry counts?

The word "rational" and "Java" do not belong in the same sentence. :P In practice, if a track can not be read in after a few retries then human intervention is generally needed. Blindly retrying forever is likely to rip the disk to shreds. After just a few retries, a disk should be removed and visua...

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

All I can tell you is that from my experience, the Preservation Stream will store 5 complete revolutions while Guided will only store one. I'm fairly sure you are simply not supposed to select Preservation in conjunction with Guided, or both at the same time. I'd assume Preservation would act as Gui...

Re: Kryoflux Flippy Disk Preservation Commands

Unless, the raw files themselves have data contained within the says "I'm so and so track # ONLY" then that may not be possible. But I don't know either, which is why I'm asking and trying to find out. Great point SomeGuy, that's something I also have wondered but never tried: can you swap .raw tra...

Re: Kryoflux Flippy Disk Preservation Commands

I don't have a flippy modded drive, so do not know exactly how this would work, but if you are saving a stream file while generating the .g64/.d64 file from this then it looks like you are using a "guided" stream dump. That has some differences from a preservation stream dump. For one, it looks like...

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

It's not very obvious, but you have to select "<multiple>" from the dropdown, then select "Kryoflux stream files, format guided" from the popup window that appears, and then hold down the SHIFT key to select additional formats in that popup window.

Re: Kryoflux Flippy Disk Preservation Commands

Or you could provide a link: https://forum.kryoflux.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=495 So basically dump as "CBM DOS sector image", specifying both sides, and then concatenate the two resulting d64 files. So the KF does not natively support double sided, and I assume the second side will still show the tra...

Re: Kryoflux Flippy Disk Preservation Commands

The "H" normally just means that a sector has been written since it was formatted. For user data disks, just ignore that. For professionally mastered disks it is a sign a user may have altered something. You also need the -k2 option (40 tracks) on the g64 output so you don't read garbage between tra...

Re: Flippy Disk Confusion Between Commodore 1571 vs 1541 Drive

Exactly, someone could format a disk as double sided then erroneously flip it over and write a single sided image on the back - of course that would overwrite data but might leave you scratching your head unless you looked at the direction of the individual tracks. I would expect the 1571 format to ...

Re: Apple II disk Grrr.....

A quick search suggests that title is copy protected using non standard sectors among other things. You will not be able to extract it to a normal DSK file.

Are there any Apple II emulators out there that support Kryoflux stream files?

Re: Flippy Disk Confusion Between Commodore 1571 vs 1541 Drive

There is still the question of how to tell the difference between the two. The best way would be to examine the tracks on the second side and see if they are recorded forwards or backwards. But I'm not sure precisely how to do that with the Kryoflux. Just glancing at the KF manual, all of the listed...
