Hey Everyone, (First off-- apologies if this is obviously covered in another post-- I didn't find anything conclusive with search.) Is there an organized effort to archive ST software similar to Farb's project for the 8-bits? https://atariage.com/forums/topic/234684-atari-8-bit-software-preservation-initiative I'm curious is there's anyone that's done a significant amount of ST disk dumping with either SuperCard Pro or Kryoflux and if there's already been discussion on preferred software to use, settings, formats, etc. (And/or if there's any alternate tools like 'a8rawconv' tailored for ST use?) If this is all documented somewhere, please feel free to tell me to RTFM and just post a link. Thanks, -Clay
So I just got my shiny new Kryoflux board yesterday. I got it all set up with an old IBM drive that I cleaned up and it is working perfectly. I was so excited to watch it produce raw stream and .img files of my original Atari 8-bit Bruce Lee disk in less than a minute and a half! I couldn't wait to put in a blank disk and see if it could write a working copy of the disk, protection and all. Then comes the "cannot open image file" error... Did I do something wrong, I wonder to myself? Wait, what? The software can't write back the images it produces??? ??? I have to send them to the "Software Preservation Society" to have them decide if it is worth their time and effort to generate a writeable .ipf file for me? I don't mean to sound ungrateful, because the Kryoflux is truly a remarkable product, but is there ANY way I can build an .ipf file myself with a windows PC? I have a lot of my own data disks; my old BBS disks especially that have become unreadable through the years, that I would like to try to bring back from the dead with this product. Any ideas, links, suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
Hi, I want to backup my 5.25" disks, which all were written with a ATARI 810 disk station and were partly "flippy" with my kryoflux. I am using Linux and only Linux. With my kryoflux I am using a Panasonic JU-475-4 A49 drive, which is currently not modified. From searching the forum I found the options to be used for non-flippy and flippy disks. But what currently make my head ache is a program called "a8rawconv". The newest version I could found a8rawconv-weaktest. For that I have two questions: Are there any newer versions I possibly missed? I only found an *.sln file for Microsoft Visual Studio, which is Windows only. Are there any build instructions/executable for Linux available? A last question: Are there any drives avaliable, which are already flippy-modded? Thank you very much in advance for any help! Cheers! mcc
