Wow, what a cool thing for Chris to provide!  What would it take to get Chris on AtariAge???  and join in on the fun!!!

 

I've converted hundred's of diskette's to DSK image.  I have one thing to say CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN your drive!  Between every disk swap as any garbage from the current disk will destroy the next one.

 

Also, I leave a my bare drive out so I can gently flex the disk on troublesome disks (as a extreme last resort).  I found that if I had questionable disk; I would be lucky to get one good read and then fail from then on.  I put those failed ones in a separate stack, and as the last resort use my "flex" method.  I also have about 10 physical disk drives that I cycle through and can general now guess which drive will work best with flaky disks (pun intended).

 

Anyhow, if you need any help with that process, let me know.  I've got the equipment to do it.

 

Don't use the TI to do disk images, too slow, to unreliable.  Use a PC with Paoblo's Bagnaresi's TI99PC utility.  Or something on a PC.  The drives are much more forgiving, much quicker, and storage is no problem.  Quicker is important, the longer that a bad disk spins in the drive the less likely it's going to come through.

 

My $0.02 worth!

 

THANKS FOR SHARING AND DOING THE COMMUNITY SUCH A HUGE FAVOR!

Hi all,

 

here is the next pile of disks :)

These here are ones which came almost without errors

I am going on, but it takes time, and drives :)

 

I am doing it like Dano tells, just put the erratas away, for later investigations.

And yes, I have to pull out the drives every 4-5 floppies, cleaning the heads manually with some fine Whiskey :)

(means the Disk-Cleaning-Sets do not help in every case, cotton swabs are much more reliable)

Yes, I put some with errors beside, like Dano told, for later checks.

But if you want I can send you a pile as these are very much floppies.

Hi,

 

as I am testing a new copy-software for the work, is there anybody outside who just can test these 2 DSK-files ?

 

They are labelled "PPAnimal-1" and "-2", but I don´t know how to open the files, or to use them.

Maybe you have an idea. TI99DIR works fine on the converted DSKs, but safe is safer :)

 

thanks a lot

 

PS: I am testing now with "RapidCopy 1.0" , maybe somebody has a newer version for me, if exists ?

      

(any other Copy-Tools are very welcome, too, if known as reliable.

 Please just post here or send to me as PM or to 99er@toxic-instruments.com )

These are Page Pro picture files. I can't test the HFE images, but I do know what they are, as I think I bought this set back in the day. . .I'll have to go check my Asgard master disk set to be sure.

Yes, but I need a test that the DSKs work, means that this CopyTool works....

But the info that it is PapePro was top, so I´ve pulled an original PagePro99 I´ve bought 10 years ago,

and could start it and open the files  :) :)

Not too sure if you are looking for this one, but

I remember this one  from the past  "Copy-C", but have not tried it recently:

 

http://home.arcor.de...til/index_e.htm

http://home.arcor.de.../copyc_pd_e.pdf

 

and German version: http://home.arcor.de.../util/index.htm

 

EDIT:

Attached File  copy-c.jpg   73.25KB   2 downloads   (this is on your CF-card image already (see other Atari-post)

 

Now I remember, the benefit is that it can copy non-standard disks, like UCSD-Pascal disks or  PR-BASE disks

and a few more  (but any other bit-per-bit or sector copier should be able to do that as well).

 

 

Other utilities are Disk Utilities 4.2 from John Birdwell

One more found from what Chris Bobbitt has sent. As Omega asked for it I rescanned it, I hope the quality is OK.

I also have the original 600dpi-scans, if somebody likes.....

Hi, here´s the same version, with the blank side #2, for a better printing.

OCR got lost, sorry, but I think just for printing should be OK

thx

Schmitzi,

  I found that if I print out pages 2-25 in booklet form on standard paper, then print out the edited cover on colored cardstock it looks great when completed.

 I've taken the liberty of attaching the edited & enlarged front page (hope you don't mind).

Schmitzi, it's all because of YOUR hard work, which I have to tell you, I really, REALLY appreciate. :thumbsup:   With all the TI goodness floating around here at Atari Age, I suppose it's possible to take it all for granted, but every program being written, every piece of hardware being created or every manual like the one you just brought back to life takes quite an investment in time and energy.  We are truly fortunate to have someone like you in our little TI community.  

 

Thanks Schmitzi!

Hi, here - maybe - is another special from the

 

ASGARD / WINFRIED WINKLER: XB3 - Extended Basic III

 

Attached File  XB3_Eproms-small.jpg   38.46KB   0 downloads

 

At Birkenau´s Meeting, Bernhard and I, we could read out the XB3 cartridge with the Wiesbaden Supermodule II v2.1

using this special Widget I brought along. OK, Bernhard did ;)

I think, Rudi gave this widget to me, some years ago.

I am not sure if I understood that correct, but up to now it was a problem to read out the XB3 (and carts like this?) because of "the widgets" ?

By the way, so or so, with this widget we could switch that cartridges while reading out, without getting any errors.

And Bernhard also did more some work on that in the past, reading out the Eproms and so. I don´t know. You will know :)

In advance, I have also unpacked his DSK-files with TI99DIR, but I am not sure if this was really needed :0)

 

So here are the results now, maybe some of you wizards can use that to get it running on the UberGROM, FinalGROM´99, Emus,

or whatever, or can use that in any way, if not given   :)

 

Have fun

xXx

Update: the XB3-files here are same version as the well-known ones, so the  "Call Coinc"  crashes too...

               Maybe this can be fixed ?
