Hello :-) I am not Multidisk but are there any news about a build for the Raspberry 2? Would really like to use KryoFlux with mine.

Hi, this never made it to "for production" status. Although the USB seems to be quick enough, the computing power itself is limiting.

That's a pity. Really hoped it would be usable especially since the Pi2 has 4 cores running @900Mhz. Hope the next installment of the Pi will be supported then if Pi2 is indeed not possible. Don't even need the GUI.

Seeing as RockyBOulder has already resurrected this thread this year, I wonder if the Raspberry Pi 3 makes it practical with both USB and processor speed? I'd love to have my (external SCSI enclosure based) KryoBox fully self contained.

Not at the moment, maintaining a port takes a lot of time and the user base for the new Raspi is still rather small.

I appreciate your position. I'm not asking for your time or assistance to write the driver - I can do that, what I'll require is either a TRM for the Kryoflux or source from an existing driver to base it on. I'm happy to give you the end result if it helps your goals.

I'll look at the library. JASPP precludes commercial use, so we're in alignment on that point.
Has there been any change on your position regarding open sourcing the driver or USB command specification for Kryflux?

The RISC OS community are still looking for a way to access floppy discs on a Pi and I'm still willing to code a RISC OS driver for Kryflux, if I can get hold of either the USB driver source or USB command specification.

Not atm as we'd use resources for a solution that's nice to have but not essential (in contrast to preservation work done on Win, MacOS and Linux).

Since the MacOS version is not maintained any more, most people are stuck with the Windows version. The Raspberry Pi would be a great way to reach a lot of enthusiasts who don't have a Windows box at hand...

Why not dump the MacOS version completely (as it's effectively dead in the water in its current state) and get a Raspberry port going? If it's a question of resources, the community is full of capable people who are ready to help. If you'd like to keep it in-house (as I suspect) than how can we buy you more time to do this? I'd be happy to chip in a few bucks and many more are willing too, I bet. Please let us know how we can move this forward...

Thanks!
