  1. Boo, I now see there's another thread about the contest. Please use that one instead. —
  2. I've been trying to find Ted since May, no luck so far. -K
  3. Also: can I use this setup to read Apple II disks? TRS-80? If so, how? thanks. ya'll are great. —K
  4. Ah! It's a flippy-modified PC drive. Changing the command to ./a8rawconv -p 104 scp0:96tpi:/dev/cu.usbserial-SCP_JIM backed_up_disk2.atr worked perfectly, and the resulting file boots in the emulator! Woo! Thank you! Now. The end goal here is to archive things for the software preservation project. I suppose I need to use a different command for flux-level images that will satisfy the needs of that project? —K
  5. That seems to work!! (I didn't try the symlink thing, tried this first and it worked.) Thank you. Now I seem to have a new problem. I've tried a couple of non-copy protected disks, and this always happens: Reading track 37 Reading track 38 Reading track 39 Writing single density ATR file: backed_up_disk.atr WARNING: Missing sectors not supported by ATR format. Writing out null data for track 1, sector 1. WARNING: Missing sectors not supported by ATR format. Writing out null data for track 1, sector 2. WARNING: Missing sectors not supported by ATR format. Writing out null data for track 1, sector 3. WARNING: Missing sectors not supported by ATR format. Writing out null data for track 1, sector 4. ...all the way through... WARNING: Missing sectors not supported by ATR format. Writing out null data for track 39, sector 17. WARNING: Missing sectors not supported by ATR format. Writing out null data for track 39, sector 18. The resulting ATR files are 92,176 bytes but cause an unrecoverable error in my emulator, Atari800MacX. -Kevin
  6. No hub. Oh! When it's plugged in, the following appear in /dev: cu.usbserial-SCP_JIM tty.usbserial-SCP_JIM Note that based on the error message, a8rawconv seems to be looking for cu.usbserial-SCP-JIM with dash instead of underscore. —K
  7. Charlie sent me another batch of disks! In them, we seem to have: - source code, art, and a semi-working demo of unfinished educational software called Discovering Music - source code for a game called Wurmz which I haven't been able to run but might be like the Snake game? - some BASIC and ML development/idea test programs (see disks CK, Utility) - copies of Ballbalzer and Behind Jaggi Lines that require a weird two-step loader to run. (read the disk labels in "other peoples' software.jpg" for instructions) I've only given these a cursory look. As always, let us know what you discover! —Kevin Kulas disks batch 2.zip
  8. Yes, plugged into USB. I even rebooted the Mac for good measure. -K
  9. Yes, I'm using the pre-compiled version. $ ls /dev/*usb* ls: /dev/*usb*: No such file or directory thanks —K
  10. I can't find Mac drivers. One thread says they exist, but everything I find is for Windows. —Kevin
  11. I'm trying to set up my Supercard Pro for the first time, connected to my Mac (running Mojave) using a8rawconv. I'm getting "unable to open serial port." Is there a driver to install or something to do to set up serial? ./a8rawconv -p 104 scp0:48tpi backed_up_disk.atr A8 raw disk conversion utility v0.9 Copyright (C) 2014-2015 Avery Lee, All Rights Reserved.
