But this is just how a normal floppy controller read this. This sector is bad from a CRC point of view. The protection routine expect to find the next sector header in the "bad" sector data. The graphical representation is right.ZrX wrote: ↑Mon Feb 15, 2021 7:37 pm That's just because the sector header has been altered to tell you the sector is 1024 bytes while the actual sector itself is still just 512 bytes. HxC tries to interpret it according to the header information and makes it look like the next sector is inside it, which also causes the checksum to come out as bad.
Too much automation in a software isn't always a good thing.

According to this site (https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=50664&start=40) the disk won't work at all on any CGA/EGA, etc. past the title (which is what happens on my dump), so maybe it's a good dump and I just have to wait for an emulator to come out since I can't write code. I'm curious, though, since my disk DOES have a notch in it (which I wasn't expecting). Anyone got a PCJr to check it?
