Disk monitor needed

Hi,

I'd like to examine the boot block of an Amiga disk. I already searched for an Amiga program via Google but without success.

DiskZap only allows the examination of files and I wasn't able to locate a download source for DiskX, DiskBuzz and Sectorama.

Could you point me to a program (in ADF- or DMS-format), that is able to display the content of the boot block?

Thanks.

DiskX in lha archive http://aminet.net/package/disk/misc/DiskX You can use it with virtual HDD if you don't know how to copy it inside ADF.
and Sectorama: http://aminet.net/package/disk/moni/Sectorama

Thanks for the fast reply. I downloaded both archives, copied the unpacked files in an ADF-file, but I can't get them to run. What is wrong? Sorry for this basic question, but I have no knowledge of how files are handled by the Amiga (as I bought this computer second hand some years ago).

Any help is appreciated.

You need to find and load WorkBench from ADF file. And you can not just copy ADF file on floppy disk to use with Amiga.

First, I created an empty Diskimage using WinUAE, then I unpacked DiskX.lha and copied the files in the empty diskimage. Then I booted the workbench in WinUAE in df0: and inserted the diskimages with the DiskX files in df1:. I can see some files and click on them, but either the screen flashes for a short time or, in case of the executable, nothing happens

I used the program Discovery which is located on Apocalypse utilities 92.

I don't remember, where I downloaded it, but I could upload it to the zone if requested.
