Samdisk v3.8 by Simon Owen, Amstrad CPC disks tranfers on PC


SAMdisk v3.8 by Simon Owen is out since the 9th March 2014.

The utility supports transfers between floppy disks and disk images, and is designed to work with almost any soft-sectored disk format compatible with the PC floppy controller, including some copy-protected formats.

Low-level floppy device access requires the fdrawcmd.sys driver to be installed.

Version 3.8, last updated 9th March 2014
- Added support for SuperCard Pro .scp flux disk images (MFM+FM)
- Added --pll option to control PLL method with flux image scanning
- Fixed --head giving ambiguous option error due to typo
- Fixed KBI-19 format slightly overhanging track wrap
- Improved EOT handling of flux images containing just one revolution
- Changed --slow-step to --old-drive to better match usage
