I'm new here so I apologize for opening this old can of worms :-)
That's the path I've been on. I envision over-sampling and then just
playing and recording what was sent to the drive. I'd make no attempt
to go inside that datastream and try to interpret what was read or
If entire tracks were always written, then it seems rather straightforward
to just store track images and play and record them as they are seeked
Ya... so, again I'm new here :-) But I'll go away quitely and think about
this some more-- knowing now that I can't cheat and do tracks at a time.
Oh, I don't know; that's all it'd take to make a few of us Cromemco folks
with failing MFM drives happy...
