I have successfully read a couple of Mod I disks
(143KB).? But some
have not read very well.
I played with one when they came out. The software wasn't ready for
I had hoped it had gotten better since then. Even something basic like
^C out of a transfer
locked the board up.
I believe that I used an MPI 100 tpi drive when I processed the Vector 4
images. Came off without a hitch using a Catweasel.
Raw decoded image was about 600K.
One of the first jobs was to decode the memorite disk itself.
Here's the disk image dump, if you're curious.
Back in 2005 I imaged both my Mod I and Mod II floppies using my Altair
and a program I wrote way way wayyyyyy back when for transferring floppy
images called "XMT". But I like to image floppies two different ways,
and the Greaseweazle cannot (yet) deal with hard sectoring.
Of course, I could also use my catweasel with these drives directly -
but kind of a pain to do.
