I'm pretty sure this will help with the "stubborn" disks.. regarding instead the issue of the "missing density switch" I was able to get another confirmation.. I was able to put my hands on an ALPS DF354H911C, also this one has the "density switch" and also this one (like the SFD-321B /LEB that has ...

Re: Read Errors handling

The only issue is that the vast majority of the new 3.5" units you find on the market since 10Years (and more) are 1.44 Mb only.. and they don't have the density switch.. I would be curios to know if anybody that has one of these drives were able to make it work with the AMIGA 880Kb disks.. I don't ...

Re: Read Errors handling

Regarding the issues I encountered with the previously mentioned drives.. maybe I found the source of the problems.. it is not misalignment.. I found another 3,5 floppy drive, old .. but still reasonably in good conditions.. a SAMSUNG SFD-321B /LEB T5.. this one works like charm .. reads ALL the AMI...

Re: Read Errors handling

Sorry, but just to be 100% sure I'm not going to cook everything.. yes, you can for sure use an 880k Amiga drive, although we do recommend HD drives as these can usually deliver better dumps, especiall for some protections.

Re: Read Errors handling

Could be all your drives got out of alignment over the years that would be surprising thinking that two of them are brand-new "never used before" drives... I will buy-try another one.. regarding AMIGA drives I can connect them directly to the board as I do with the PC-HD drives? P.S: regarding the ...

Read Errors handling

Hi, I just unpacked/tested the Kryoflux device and I noticed a strange behavior.

These disks are original OS3.1 disks I kept like gold and v...
