Panasonic JU-475-5C30 - Flippy mod successful using the same mod instructions as the AKJ.

Works perfectly.

UPDATE: Since flippy mod was performed - drive has no issues with calibration or returning to reset position after dumping a disk.

A couple more Panasonic models that work great with KF as well flippy mod well.

Important - make sure the jumpers are at factory settings. Improper jumper settings can cause issues.

Question - I have a Chinnon FZ-502. I've not done any mods to it as it's used by the bridgeboard in my Amiga 2000. However, I am trying it with my KryoFlux. When I use the -c2 command, I get:-

CM: maxtrack=41

however, when I try to dump a BBC floppy disk, it reads to track 83.1. How come?

Not sure. DTC is very careful not to bang the head while making this test. Apparently, for some reason unknown to me ATM, the head did not move as expected, hence the test was ended with 41.

We do recommend HD drives, this one is DD.

All of the following drives resulted in a maxtrack of 83 for me:

Teac FD-55FR 511U
Teac FD-55B-01-U
Panasonic JU-256A178P
Panasonic JU-257A607P
Mitsumi D369T5

(I presume that means they are capable of 84 tracks, as tracks are 0-83?)

Teac FD-235HG was not so lucky, I think it had a maxtrack of 81, so avoid that one.

Canon 5011 - 84 Tracks
Epson SD-880 (dual drive of SD-600 and SD-1100) - both 84 Tracks

I purchased an IBM 4869 and I'm going to replace the drive with the SD-880 and mount the Kryoflux in there. I have an external PSU that'll do molex with the proper power output, so if I need to I'll remove the internal PSU for space (but I'd like to keep that. :D)

I've been using a Mitsubishi Model M4851-112U DS/DD 48TPI 360K Floppy Drive with my brothers KryoFlux and it works perfect.

Thanks.
