Re: Shugart 801

mucous, I have no experience with 8" drives but here is a thought... try a different cable (if you are using the same cable on all three drives). Perhaps the index hole wire in your cable is broken.

Re: Log file data...

Bad is bad sectors (data exists or partially exists in the sector, but it is scrambled or incomplete). Maybe Mis are sectors that are completely missing?
That would be one bad track in your example.

Re: KryoFlux and Apple 400/800K floppies

Just rediscovered this old post. I found that a Samsung SFD-321B does indeed give excellent results on Mac HD floppies, usually much better than any of my other 3.5 drives. It didn't seem to fair so well for 800k floppies though. Not always, but I tended to get the same result at mrpijey, with the l...

Re: Attempting to dump IBM-PC disks.

No sorry, no idea as I have no experience with either. The only other suggestion I can think of would be to make sure your DTC command isn't producing the raw STREAM files only (ie. make sure you also specify the MFM sector based file for output as well). If you specify both STREAM and MFM, then the...

Re: Attempting to dump IBM-PC disks.

First off, I have no idea what PCE's pfi tool and I haven't really imaged IBM PC disks so I might be talking out of the wrong orifice here, but I don't think you have anything to worry about. Don't worry about the different RPM, as I understand it the difference doesn't affect the ability of the Kry...

Re: Log all DTC output to a file

Ooh, that looks promising. What I meant by the lack of progress on piping was that you issue the command and then because there was no console output (it's being piped to a file) the only response you get is when the prompt comes back after the command completes. 'tee' looks like it would solve that...

Log all DTC output to a file

Sorry if this is a blindingly obvious feature that already exists, but I can't for the life of me find it if it does (in linux DTC v2.2 anyway) and I think it would be a "nice to have" feature. I would like to log all of the output from DTC into a log file. Now I realised that I can pipe it all into...

Re: Problems/advice with ripping Apple ][ 5.25" floppies...

Using the -DDx parameter can change the drive mode, if the drive actually supports that and is jumpered to work that way. Presumably this means use -DD0 to disable, however for Apple // floppies I found this would almost always cause bad reads. When I use -DD1, I get really good reads (even better ...

Re: Apple II & Atari 8-Bit image files.

Hmm, it might be some sort of copy protection then, or otherwise one of the starting files may be corrupt. From CiderPress, I think you can right-click on the files and get options to view the contents. SYS and BIN may have options to view the assembly code. Your BIN files at AUX address $4000 might...
