Disk wiping support?

I was thinking, maybe a little option to overwrite a disk completely with binary zero (no flux transitions) would be useful? Especially if you start adding support for writing 48tpi formats on 5.25", so you can wipe those half-tracks... Just an idea really, not a serious request. What do other peopl...

Re: xfd write support

Always interested in write support... And a question, XFD for Atari 8-bit, right? The I'd like to register interest in general MFM (and if possible FM) write support, which as far as I can see would include Atari disks, provided you can set a custom target drive speed with -v288. Of course there are...

Re: Atari 8-bit dumping

Just want to know what are the best 5 1/4 drives for reading and writing SS/SD disks for Atari 8 Bit in xfd format? Currently there is not yet write support for Atari XFD formats in the DTC and KryoFlux GUI software. If the disks are truely single sided, any working and aligned 5 1/4 inch PC compat...

Re: modifying panasonic 475 question

I just answered my own question.... Turns out the little tab I put on the track so it knows its still in track 0 stuck out just a tiny bit too far back the opposit way, so it thought track 0 came too soon, so the drive would hang... :) Now I just need to find something that will work right in its p...

Re: Not working Amiga Protections

I've tried writing Arcade Pool from IPF in my NEC HD drive (I got another now) and it seems to work very well. At least I can play a game without triggering any protection messages and/or crashes. Drive is a NEC FD1231H, datecode 1998.10. And the Amiga is a standard PAL A500, 1.3 ROM, 512K trapdoor ...

Re: AppleDOS write support

Only there should be a way to discern ad-hoc IPFs from true hand-made ones. The obvious solution to that has been discussed before on this forum and, as I understand it, has been called desirable for some future time by the main programmers (but don't quote me on that): public-key kryptography. The...

Re: On writing, should deal intelligently with write protect

just use the search Do you mean the forum search function? I tried, but the words "write" and "protection" are both too common and therefore forbidden in search. And there seems to be no way to search for phrases as opposed to single words. The forum software seems to be quite restrictive to preven...

Re: D64 write support?

As I wrote in the other thread: I'd like to qualify my interest by saying it might make more sense for the main active kryoflux programmers to invest the time in a good documentation of the IPF format. That way other people could then write converters. But of course it's up to you.
