Kurzweil K2000 formatting disk verified failed [error]

Post by teevee » Fri Apr 26, 2019 9:22 am

Hi HxC Folks,
I wanted to make a blank disk for my Kurzweil K2000RS, which can be used to save my work on, so I have insert a random downloaded .KRZ disk [K2000 raw format], which has been converted with the HxC Floppy Emulator to .HFE.

My Floppy Emulator is running firmware version 3.1.46.1A

I have attached two examples [Pictures], one where I let the K2000 format it as 720k and one as 1.4 MB.

Both were not able to be converted.

Please see result of formating here:

You can't format a HD HFE as a DD image.

Anyway just use an 1.44MB DOS IMG file (attached).

EDIT : Btw which usb stick are you using ? (brand & model?)

Hi Jean,
The usb stick is no-branded and the cheapest possible found on eBay, but they have worked fine so far for loading and saving.

When I convert your provided disk image to .HFE and try to format it, then I get “Verify failed!, Track: 0”.

I came to a work-around as deleting the .KRZ files manually instead of formatting.

you don't need to convert it : the firmware directly support img files !

I think that your usb stick is just too slow for the hfe format process.
this should work better with img files in your case.
