Just wondering how best to do a dump of a floppy disk that has Amiga, PC and ST data on it? The disk is a Public Domain cover disk and has a note on the label "Tri-format disk by Rob Northern Computing". Do I need to do 3 dumps of this disk with Amiga, PC and ST settings or is there another option to just do 1 dump of the disk data?

One dump in index mode should work for all formats.

There really aren't different formats with flux.. the disk type really just fills in the number of tracks.

I would like to see the image.

Here is the dump (5 rev) that I did:

The PC and ST files are all viewable in Steem. When I try and use the SCP file with WinUAE it does not boot up.

Here is the disk layout:

One hint : the amiga part can only be accessed thru the workbench, it can't be loaded right away.

It contains 4 programs :

-Zeus
-Intuitracker
-Nuke
-backup

Yep, that image is fine and you only need a single revolution. The Amiga compatible portion does not auto boot. It does pop the disk up on Workbench as "Tri-format disk", with the programs mentioned above.
