Re: Dumping C64 disks fails?

Basically this looks ok. Commodore used 80 track stepping mechanisms in the 1541. Therefore you have to double step (skip every second track). Not sure about the blue track. What does it say?

Re: Manual for Kryoflux for Mac ?

I had exactly same problem with 3.5" Panasonic JU-257A427P -> calibration returned 0 :? .

3.5" Sony MPF920 calibration passed successfully and it has 83 tracks. Reading of the first disk on my Mac worked properly. Great stuff :)
