QuoteIndeed, very very few drives is compatible using 1.44MB floppies on amstrads. But try taping over the little hole in the 1.44mb floppy then both pc and amstrad thinks its a 720kb floppy and it usually works much much better.
QuoteWay to test proper written dsk:1. Write image to floppy (with CpcDiskXP)2. imediatly read back the floppy in CPCDiskXP with "verify" option.
Quote from: Cholo on 15:55, 22 April 09Im a bit curious here .. do you have the 3.5" drive as a external and a 3" inside your 6128? or reversed?
QuoteOnce you have tape over the hole in a 1.44mb floppy, perhaps its a good idea to format it to 720kb too. I know it should really matter, but just in case.As Win XP dont support 720kb format you need a program like FMT to do the formatting (last on the page):http://www.paehl.de/english.php
Quote from: Agrop on 02:35, 24 April 09MANY THANKS!!!! This solved my problems. It seems that CPCDiskXP formats my 3,5" disks wrongly. When I used recommended sw and formatted it to 720 kB - all started working as it should. Now I am using CPCDiscXP only to write .dsk files and I can read and run them easily on Amstrad. I am able to boot CP/M or SymbOS, or run games and apps. Plus, I've cloned CP/M from 3,5" disk to 3"!Well, now it's time to dive into the software ocean!Thank you Cholo again for help and best regards.
