Re: Timeout while waiting for device initialization

I think the jumpers on your drive looked fine. I suspect at some point in the past, the drive was either incorrectly repaired or intentionally modded. Apparently drives prior to the 55-GFR could be changed to 40 track operation with a jumper or cut solder trace. After doing further reading, it looks...

Re: Timeout while waiting for device initialization

I think you need to post a few detailed and close-up photos of the circuit board(s) from this drive. I wonder if it has also had some previous "repairs" done on it. I'm not sure if it is possible (I guess so), but maybe the board has been swapped out from another drive/model. Or maybe more likely, t...

Re: Timeout while waiting for device initialization

It sounds like the jumpers on the drive have been configured for the wrong density (presumably low). Do a Google search for that drive model and one of the first few links will be to a manual for the drive, which should tell you what the jumper/strap settings are. This link in the kryoflux forums al...

Re: Timeout while waiting for device initialization

Hey you reminded me - I also remember giving up and wiping the applicaion away. However, I also remember installing the latest version as well (at the time, I was using an older version). I suspect that I had fiddled with the settings of the format definitions and must have done something to confuse...

Re: Timeout while waiting for device initialization

No spaces would have been my suggestion as well, and I think I followed that same course of action when I had the problem. If you just use the STREAM dump instead of the Apple 400/800k option, does it generate the folder with the raw files in it? Some other things to consider: Does a folder with the...

Re: Timeout while waiting for device initialization

Hey, I like Apple2Online.com - thanks for a good resource. I don't know the answer for certain, but I suspect you might have to specify an extension when you entered your filename. I recall once being stumped by something exactly like what you describe and I think it was due to a missing extension (...

Re: Apple II floppy question

To be honest, I always thought the description of these was a bit misleading. After not doing an Apple // dump session for a while, I would always have to go and rediscover which option was the correct one to use. Then I would promptly forget this and the reasoning for my conclusion. So the followin...

Re: apple ii prodos disk sector order

I have seen some Apple // emulators that get very picky about the extension, possibly where the extension doesn't correspond to the sector ordering of the file.

Try simply changing your extension from .po to .dsk and see if that makes a difference.

Re: Apple II floppy question

But since you only want the image for use in AppleWin, you are going to use the AppleWin debugger to try and catch what the protection check is doing and counter it, right? Then you can add your own "Cracked by notbobsmith" intro.

I know, more easily said than done.

Re: Determining disk label/capacity/format from stream

At the risk of talking about something I haven't even looked at, there might be sufficient information at this site to get some of what you want: http://www.win.tue.nl/~aeb/linux/fs/fat/fat-1.html I would guess this is something like what hydr0x has done.
