cheers :)

I've packed away the disks I've imaged, just to make room really! so I'll dig them all out when I get done imaging everything else

I find it amusing you got to around the same point as I did before things ground to a halt ;)

The mountain 'o disks be cursed! Cursed I say!

a few more disks are up now, I'm to a nice round number of 600 imaged.
They are on my FTP at the moment, and will be on Climatics soon, as it appears to be offline right now.

Index file has been updated too.

I also have put together an old XP desktop here at work, with a floppy drive, so I can image a few more disks during the day, workload permitting :)

another 264 disk uploaded :)

I'm a bit worried I mucked up the counting half way through, so if the disks don't match the name, try the disk before or after in the list.

I'm back on track now :)

Nice. I checked a load of them (about 20 different disks) between 600 and 864 and none of the disk numbers were wrong - so I'm not sure you did mess it up.

OK, another 199 disks added, and the master index file updated. Up to 1064 disks imaged now :)

These are on both FTP sites now, both should have the same files, so pick whichever is faster for you I guess :)

OK, I have dug out my Kryoflux, so I can try some of the less readable disks, but what format should I output the images ?

I'm using this at the moment:

DTC -fdiskname.img -i4

but I don't want to make a load of images that can't be used in emulators - any tips ?

answered my own question :)

yes, -i4 writes images that Steem can use, neat :)

Use the Java GUI. Much easier :-)

awesome, Steem reads HD disks too - this will save LOADS of time :)

MUG, the command line is just as easy, I'm just feeding a huge pile of disks in the the floppy drive one by one ... :)
