Lower/Upper/Side

Post by Giants » Thu Jan 04, 2018 6:21 pm

Hi !

We know Bootbloc start from 0 in lowerSide. (I speak On Amiga floppy of course)

In a lot of softwares, include Kryoflux Gui (java), we not see Lower and Upper but Side0 and Side1
And, in other software, Amiga software, we speak with head.
ex : Head 0, head1

- In kryoflux Gui, Side0=Lower side ?
- Is they are a 'standard' about Head <> Side <> lower/upper ?

I think, but You will confirm this, they are not really standard to say :
Face1 = head1 (or 0)

In some french documentation, we find Face1, Face2 :D

It's... a bit disarray :)

I think majority of systems have lower head as side 0.

Commodore 1581 diskdrive being an exception.
