autoDiskCreate process for 65U:

The autoDiskCreate programs for OS65U are underway. At the time of my original post of this process for 65D I was rather peeved to put it mildly. I had just lost all my notes for this,either left on the train or removed by someone at work.I was not a happy camper.I set a deadline to finish and upload while some aspects were still retained in the grey matter. A 65U version however, the OS I new little about, was at the time not on the radar under the circumstances.
I know there a few on the forum who have done some great work with the repro boards projects and have an interest in 65U. A 65U verion of autoDC and autoSI seems fitting and would complete the this project.Since having cooled off - it's about half done and I hope to upload sometime soon.

Hi Mike,
Yes I know I promised I'd update the manual...Unfortunately I've injured my hand which has put a bit of a damper on things...but it's still on my to-do list

autoSI v65U is on track ! The autoDC program is going to be a challenge without my notes ... The Tera Term macro will be easy with one macro to cover all 65U images - just change the split filenames. :D

PS. Interesting, file splits are the same if the sector is read 8N1 or 8E1 -no bit shift and both correct ? Maybe the ACIA emulation ignores parity.

Yes, the WinOSI emulator disk format was built around Ed's Raw Disk dump, which dumps decoded 8bit data. There is no preservation of Parity, Framing, Overflow or even disk timing. Once it's in the emulator it's just 8bit data.

Now that there is another way to dump data, the HFE disk format could store all of that information, at 11x the file size!
