Reading Amiga High Density Disks

Post by loedown »

I have tried, I have failed. What settings do I need to set in order to read Amiga HD disks as .adf files?

I have created a new profile in Kryoflux GUI called "Amiga HD" and set sectors to 22 and RPM to 150. Please post a reply or point me to another thread if it's already been answered.


Cheers,

Paul

You shouldn't set it to 150 rpm, the pc drive will be reading it at 300.

The Amiga writes normal data speed at 150 rpm to emulate an hd stream at 300.

Does that work any better?

No it didn't help, can you please write down the steps in how to create a .adf image of a high density disk please?

Even tried using DTC with command line of DTC -fahd4 -i5

The track information comes back that the track is unformatted which is rubbish, the disks have data and in Amiga HD

Could it be you are mixing up Standard Amiga and HD Amiga? I've not seen a single reference to HD Amiga in DTC or manual. Although I am pretty sure this can be read with KryoFlux, I am not sure if it's in the current codebase.

Will ask IFW... he's on business travel.

DTC used to work with all the Amiga HD disks that I've ever had, so it still should...
Please post the stream files and I'll take a look.

I got to the bottom of the issue, two disks which were supposed to be high density are actually horrendously damaged, so I thank you for your time and this thread can be closed.
