Convert "i4" dump files to Amstrad DSK

Post by girv73 » Mon Oct 24, 2011 11:26 pm

Source of a Java program to convert dtc -i4 dumps to DSK images usable in Amstrad CPC emulators.

This is a basic implementation and can only cope with single sided, 40 track dumps of AMSDOS 3" disks in DATA or SYSTEM format. However that should be enough to recover non-copy protected disks.

Nice!

Out of interest, do you know if any Amstrad emulators support plain MFM sector images without all this header stuff on the front?

As far as know the CPC world used only 2 types of floppy disk images :

CPC - DSK.

and

Extended CPC DSK.

For cpc users the support of these kind of files is a need ;)

I am glad that the IMG files we create have all MFM data present, so you can convert with small tools as needed.

We are also happy to collaborate if anyone wants a special format supported.

Yes, anything can be added as long as there is enough interest :)
