Omniflop only formats on 80/2/18X512

Post by gkmaia »

Sorry if this post is not focused on emulation but I see lots of people here experienced on Omniflop.

I am struggling to get Omniflop to format different to 80/2/18X512.

No matter what format I choose when testing the disk with the wizard it always returns as 80/2/18X512.

According to installation and requirements:
- I licensed it
- run the wizard and installed the FDC and Floppy drivers under XP SP3 safe mode as admin.
- My drive and HD & DD floppies were extensively tested by formatting, read, write delete tasks.

Then when trying to write an .IMG file that corresponds to the format of the disk the wizard returns an error.

The impression I have is that whatever format Omniflop Wizard sends to the drivers they ignore it and go back to standard DOS 80/2/18X512 as if the drivers were not installed properly.

But when checking on my device manager the Omniflop drivers are there listed correctly with Jason signature.
