I will look at the fdi format. How good is the GCR emulation in WinUAE? Several Amiga games were encoded with a mixture of MFM and GCR, mid track too.

With raw flux data there no "density" to contend with. For emulations that are using flux level, it greatly simplified things because the word of data that represents each flux transition is just a clocking duration and the MFM data is built from that, making it exactly like an original disk. SuperCard Pro can also be a floppy drive emulator and will use flux image files so no data has to be interpreted, it's just spooled like a real drive does.

Thanks again for your insight on this!
