Firmware & Frontend Updated to 1.010

I added the option to erase a complete disk, this will fill the entire disk with 4”s (2”s for HD media) flux transitions. The is also an option to pre erase while writing an image or formatting a disk. This helps when overwriting older or non-amiga formatted disks. Also all write operations should perform faster now.

This new version requires the latest ADF-Drive firmware.

You can find both in the Download section.

New Firmware & Application

New Version available, some new features.

I updated the Interface of the Frontend Application to be more logical and impleted some new features:

  • Compare – reads the disk in the drive and compares it to an adf-file on your harddrive.
  • Format – formats the disk in the drive in OFS, quickformat is available
  • AutoFormat – does the same, but like autorip it prompts you to change the disk and continues formating disks until you hit Abort.
  • Diskinfo – reads the Boot & Rootblock and displays infos and the used blocks bitmap
  • Settings – allows you to edit the timing parameters of adf-drive to compensate for problems with older drives. requires some knowledge about floppy drives, but you can always restore to default settings.
ADF-Copy/Drive Frontend v1.002

All-in-One Version for Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10), Linux, Raspberry Pi
New Features:
– more detailed diskinfo and used blocks
– format disk, format several disks
– changing drive timings for larger compatibility woth older drives, mtp mode on/off, number of retries and saving them to EEPROM
– compare disk to adf file.
– graphical overhaul of interface
– bugfixes of v1.001

Version: v1.002

The new Frontend requires a new firmware so make sure you update your firmware too.

ADF-Drive Firmware v1.001

Updated firmware with new features
– Saving settings in EEPROM, timings for the drive can be adjusted and saved.

GrĂ¶ĂŸe: 100kb
Version: v0.625

Changes

  • Time and Date for Amiga Files and the ADF Image
  • watchdog timer: resets the microcontroller after 8 seconds a fatal error occured
  • the internal LED of the Teensy used for signalling errorcodes:
    • 3 flashes then pause: read error
    • 5 flashes then pause: write error
    • slow flashing: out of memory error (might also cause a reset by watchdog)
    • fast flashing: no floppy drive detected or hardware error
  • read / write errors are also displayed as a message as the „DF0:“ drivename
  • formatting of HD Disks with the MTP interface should work now, HD support is still very fragile
  • improved error handling
  • bumped up the read and write retries
  • improved compatibility with Windows 7
