A blank file is needed to make proper tests.

How do I go about making that happen? The disks I'm using were pulled from the hxc site.

Yeah so same issue here. It won’t save no matter what.
Here are files for proper testing. Hopefully it helps.

They are on your email too
You can send files for test over email to make things quicker.

Sure, if that will help me and others then why not. We will have to arrange a time for this sessions as I have rotated shifts at work. Best for me would be test couple of files at same time and if you let me know before there is something coming. Let me know on email as there I have notifications thru my phone.

After inspection of your hfe it appears that the written data are valid (valid crc). this means that the data are correctly captured, which is a good news.
so the issue shouldn't too hard to fix.

Don’t have usb-serial but how much it would cost in UK to buy?
If you got any spare, I can give you my address to have it posted and once we’re done I would send it back to you.
Also have send invitation for my google drive on your email as created a folder to exchange files. Have a look.
If you could email me instead I will respond quicker as here on forum got no notifications whatsoever
