if you are a CEO member, why don't you try to use the last Oric floppy (edisk of june 2011, Ceoz1106.dsk), it is SEDORIC 3 (42 tracks/17 sectors/2 sides), boot it on HxC then try backup to 3" floppy drive (BACKUP A TO B or B TO A)?

Best regards,

Hey, it the file I gave you during the CEO isn't it ? ;)

Re: Oric floppy images support DSK to HFE conversion

Post by seb » Thu Sep 15, 2011 10:01 am

Hello guys!

recently I got a microdisc + hxc floppy emulator and it works great !

but i 'm experiencing a very annoying problem in using the converter from .dsk files to .hfe

while converting the .dsk file images found on the internet , there'is not so many problems , the disks in hfe are correctly recognized by the hxe emu. (most of them...) and some ends with track/sector read errors...

so , In oricutron I 've made some new dsk images, working very well in the oricutron emulator.
but after saving the dsk image ( after modifications in oricutron) , and then passing them to the hfe converter
I loose many sectors and tracks ! making hfe image unusable :'(

so on my first try , I found with hex editor of oricutron generated dsk that the inter -sector informations (gaps/synchros..) are not the same , it seems that the CRC for each sector are different !!!

so i fix it for my first test , by changing in hex editor the frame 4E 4E 00 00 00... A1 A1 A1 F8 by 4E 4E 00 00 00 .. A1 A1 A1 FB and i was the happiest man in the world ... but for a short moment only...

Adding more files to a new dsk image....converted it... not working...TRACK/SECTOR READ FAULT ERRORS even after the fix above...

Examining the log of hfe converter:

before fixing with hexed , the converter seems to skip many sectors....
after fixing , ok i got all sectors , but not like in my first test , the track/sector order is scrambled !
(ie Track 0 Sector 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12...17
Track 1 Sector 14,15,16,17,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13
Track 2 Sector 10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9....

I will post tonite (as i am at work right now) the log files & dsk image to make it more evident

So my next test is to generate dsk images with another oric emulator (euphoric) but i m so used to oricutron :(

please help !

great!

whatever , the process is ok but complicated (hexediting , open in euphoric with dosbox environment, copy A to B (B=new disk) but it works and it is the most important for me :)

thanx for the support

Hi,

I have some .DSK Oric floppy disk images that make HxCFloppyEmulator.exe (even v2 Beta) to crash while converting.
Here are two of them in case someone can see what's wrong :
