When I tried applying this update the Oled display went black and I get a very fast flashing red light. Power cycling doesn't seem to fix it. Is there anything I can do to recover it?

K, the BS1 files that are being dumped in the form of a .raw file are confusing me as to the capabilities. I know they can be used in Winuae but...

here are my questions...

- Can .raw files be run from HXC gotek or flash floppy in Amiga
- Can .raw files be converted to IPF format
- Can .raw files be written to a floppy using Kryoflux or Supercard pro
- Can i in any way play these games in my Amiga

If answer is no... is there any plans to try to make this possible?

Thanks

"Kryoflux raw files Writer : Fix dead lock with tracks without pulse."

Sounds like it.

It is not simple to convert raw files to IPF since you need to have detailed knowledge about the format used (this used to be a somewhat manual operation by SPS), but I think that Keir Fraser's Disk Utilities should be able to recognize and handle many different formats and loaders:
