Kryoflux Akai S950 Dump and conversion to HFE

Post by mikedean » Tue May 02, 2017 8:20 am

Hello,

I am trying to dump some of my old Akai S950 disks using Kryoflux and then convert to HFE and load in hxc flashed gotek. So far I have tried dumping as CT Raw, and Kryoflux Stream, Preservation. I then load the raw files into HxC Floppy Emulator v2.1.6.0 and export as hfe. When I load hfe in S950 sampler the disk is empty. I have other images that I have downloaded that work fine. None of my images seem to work. Anyone have any experience dumping S950 disks to hfe?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi there,

Did you ever figure this out? Do you of any documentation which describes how to extract s950 files to .hfe format for the HXC?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi Jeff,

I have a kryoflux and a Windows pc with a floppy and omniflop. Do you know if anyone posted instructions on how to extract also s950 floppies and then convert them to a readable format for the HXC? Everything I have tried so far is not working. I have an HXC type f installed.

Thanks

With kryoflux raw preservation images :

-> Start the hxc software
-> Drag & Drop one and only one raw file on the main window
-> Wait...
-> Track Analyzer Button
-> Disk view mode Radio button
-> Check that all is fine (no bad sector and 800 sectors/819200 bytes of data on each side)
-> Close the Analyzer window
-> Button Export
-> Save (IMG file / RAW Sector file format)

At this point you have an "omniflop image"/img version of your kryoflux preservation dump. Just follow the above procedure to generate an hfe file from these raw/omniflop image:

With omniflop/img images (S950 images should have a size of 1.6MB) :

-> Start the hxc software
-> Button "Load Raw Image"
-> In "Predefined Disk Layout" choose "Akai S950 3"5 HD Floppy Disk"
-> Button "Load Raw file"
-> Choose the omniflop file image
-> Button Export
-> Save (to the default HFE file format)
