Need Diskspare ADF image please
 
I'm having trouble with converting diskspare disks to images with my homebrew floppy reader. It always seem to have disk errors when trying to copy files from it.

I would really appreciate it if anyone could send me a real amiga produced 984KB ADF with the diskspare format. I could use it as a reference and see if the code I made to create the image has an error or if the byte length is wrong etc. Just an empty formatted disk would be great. Winuae seems to create different kinds of images compared to amiga created ones.

Thanks in advance!

@Prowler

He's looking for a 984kb image.

That's a 960kb disk. It will only mount with my 960 DosDriver. A 984kb disk needs 984 Dosdriver.

Does yours do the same or have you got one DosDriver that mounts them both?

Here's a 984 image.

No, I misunderstood his request as I have never actually encountered a 984K Diskspare disk or image. :blased

Prowler, Arnie, thanks a lot! I've been trying to get a good disk image for days on an 1.3 kickstart A500 with just 1MB. AmigaExplorer host locks up, can't read from diskspare disks etc. It may be just that diskspare uses a very weak checksum, making it seem good while capturing the disk image but on the filesystem level it throws up bad block after the other. I hope it's my code, that would mean I could still recover a lot of data. AmigaDos and pc disks work very well, have much stronger checksums too.

Thanks again!
Cheers!
