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.
