how to setup and use greaseweazle v4

Post by hutch »

hi again all,

so i took previous advice and purchased a GW v4.
im ok with actually plugging it in etc - setup ready with 3inch drive and external power, but a little confused with how to use "fluxmyfloppy" gui. lots of settings on there i could use help with plz..
thx in advance,
ian


ok so i got GW reading my 3 inch disk, saved as .hfe then loaded into hxcfloppy then exported as oric.dsk. however, oricutron and euphoric both say 'no operating system'.
anybody help on this one? i used 'fluxmyfluffyfloppy' GUI would it be a settings problem in the GUI maybe? screenie attached

From the picture everything seams to be correct and OK.
I'm preparing something like short guide how to dump bad floppies.
Can you attach the resulting HFE (and DSK) to see what can be the problem.
I'm really not sure that HFE->DSK converter works even the latest version from svn sources.

If you attach any dump I can try to make working DSK from it.

Stopping HxCFloppyEmulator...
So the tracks 0, 28 and 36 are missing and the message 'no operating system' is more than expected.
There is also problem with the HFE->DSK converter - in short it doesn't work!
I'm using my own tool which creates good DSK file usable in all emulators.

To use the attached DSK you have to boot first with good SEDORIC DSK and then "insert" it.
Obviously the other missing tracks (i.e. 28 and 36) mean more broken file(s) :(
For this particular case I think OUM disk 92/10 is available somewhere for download.

Stopping HxCFloppyEmulator...
So the tracks 0, 28 and 36 are missing and the message 'no operating system' is more than expected.
There is also problem with the HFE->DSK converter - in short it doesn't work!
I'm using my own tool which creates good DSK file usable in all emulators.

To use the attached DSK you have to boot first with good SEDORIC DSK and then "insert" it.
Obviously the other missing tracks (i.e. 28 and 36) mean more broken file(s) :(
For this particular case I think OUM disk 92/10 is available somewhere for download.

so you have made your own tool for creating .dsk will you be releasing it?

Yes, I plan to put it on github - source and binaries for most common OSes.
But it needs really lot of work to become complete and reliable tool.

If the HxC HFE to DSK writer is broken, then I guess we need to take a look at it.

As far as I know, that's the latest source code:

I did not have the time to look at it, but basically what we probably need is a couple of HFE that work when converted back to DSK, and a couple that don't work, ideally with the original DSK so it's possible to check where it's going wrong.

After that it's probably a matter of looking into what the code does which could possibly get wrong for these specific disks, maybe it's something with some checksums, or an issue with the geometry of the disk.

conversion does not seem to work even with a good working disk
