Kryo-Drive emulation ?

Post by steinmonty »

The kryoFlux can read floppies, It can write floppies, why not (if it doesnt already) emulate a drive,

The parts are all in place, The unit could read the track change signals and send back the recorded data
so the connected vintage computer thinks its reading data from a real drive.

Perhaps this device already has this feature? It would be a simple combination of the code already
in the device for reading and writing, just like writing a floppy, but instead of sending the track changes
to the drive, it reads the track changes.

I thought it would be a good idea, then you have permanent storage instead of writing data back to floppies
which arent going to last forever.

I have hundreds of floppies and some are going blotchy, I found two that have mould on them

the kyro flux emulates the fdd controler not the fdd drive
