Hi Jeff,

I have not yet received my emulator hardware, but I did receive the Kryoflux.

I've connected the system and was successful in installing the drivers etc. It appears my disk drive is capable of reading 80 tracks - is this sufficient?

I used Kryoflux to create the .raw files of 3 disks
I used the HXC emulator software to load the .raw files, and export 3 .HFE files (see attached).

Is this something you can test to see if they were produced correctly?

Thanks,
Jason

Hello Jeff,
I would like to ask you some questions. I hope you will be able to help me.
Do you have image system disk to which you know EPROM number?
Do you have image system disk no 2 in polish language?

I am waiting for delivery of KryoFlux ( I have HxC Floppy Emulator) and then I will start the project.

thanks,
Mariusz Biernacki

this is not an multronica disk format. Can you share the original stream raw files ?

Jeff, maybe I created the HFE files incorrectly? Maybe my RAW files are incorrect?

Thanks for your help. Files are too large to attach on the forum - download from my dropbox here:

Hope this helps!

I sent to your email one system disk generated from your dumps. Both have some bad sectors, but i managed to generate a proper disk from both dump.
Let me know if all is fine.

Hi, sorry to tag onto this thread but it seems to be where it all happens!

I've been attempting to read/backup a damaged arburg system disk. I have used a kryoflux to read the raw stream, and I load that stream in HFE and export the image. I can then use this image with the Virtual Copylog program to successfully load the system disks in CopyLog. At least I think it is successful, as the machine type green label in copylog updates with the machine type. Arburg COPYLOG recognising the system disk gave me hope that the disk would be recoverable.

However when I try to create a new copy of the floppy disk by rewriting my raw kryoflux stream data back to floppy disk, the disk is not recognised by the arburg machine (falsche diskette), just like the original. Am I out of luck here and need to order a new disk from Arburg? Is there any way to analyse the damage to the disk and potentially attempt to recover data if it is not too badly damaged? I have seen jeff talk about damaged sectors here, which is why I ask!

Any hints would be appreciated... This entire thread has been a wealth of knowledge already so thanks :)

Have a look to the track viewer and select the disk view mode. (think to check the arburg modes).
