Finally (and about time too), I got around to setting up my KryoFlux Disk USB Floppy Controller.
The USB controller has been sitting in its box for over a year now, and the spare 1/2 day arrived, and I hooked it up to my miniServer. Previous attempts to us my QuickSilver2000 PowerMac didn't work, as the KryoFlux program would only support USB drivers under 10.6+ Intel Macs. Although the windows version supported XP, attemptinf to install it in XP under VirtualPC, seemed to work right up to the trying to initialise the USB controller to read a disk. BAH!
So, fast forward 12 months (or so) and today I set it up, tested a few known (and expendable) 400K and diskettes, and then took the plunge with the backup copy of MicroSoft Basic for Macintosh. Wirrr, chunk, chunk, chunck. . . . Looking good. . . . ARGhhhhhhhh! Bad Sectors at 63-70 <insert expletives here>
Took out the original diskette, happy noises, Wirr,, , chunk, chunk, chunk . . . . . Bing!
Now I have "Microsoft_Basic_Mac_v1.0_Original_s0.img" Flick it across from the Mini to my QS2002, fire up Mini vMac, change disks to the new MS Basic image and BINGO! Introducing the "Music" sample program from the MS Basic diskette
