Jasmin/FTDOS to Microdisc/Sedoric

Post by Dbug » Sun Mar 10, 2019 1:37 pm

Last year I got hold of a pack of 3" floppies with Oric software on it, that I did not manage to read on my Oric.

Then I found out that one of the floppies was a FTDOS 3.2 system disk, so I assume that the other floppies are also using FTDos.
EDIT: There was also a T-DOS 2-2 (Face A: Atmos, Face B: Oric 1) floppy at the bottom, so that may be a mix...)

Is there a way to convert these to Sedoric format so I can check the content? Would be a shame to just reformat them without checking, there may be interesting stuff on them.

If you still got a PC with a FDC, you can still try and read them with Readdsk. That seems like the most straightforward solution.

I seem to recall there was a software to read disks from a system to another (someone showed this at a metting but I was busy discussing elsewhere), but I can't recall if it was Sedoric reading FTDos disks, or the reverse. I don't know if this has been published. It's worth taking a look at some old Theoric, I would be suprised if this subject hadn't been adressed in the past.

Some time ago I asked about info on the Jasmin FT Dos format, so it could be supported I. Oric Explorer for those owning a Jasmin. If you find anything, please let me know.
