Convert CAPS/SPS raw dump to IPF?

Forgive me if this info is already posted somewhere, but I wasn’t able to turn it up quickly.

As the title suggests, does a public tool exist to convert a raw dump (made with the CAPS dumping disk and a real Amiga) to an IPF file?

If that windows binary still is there somewhere on the fileserver, keep in mind it wont have CTRAW support so that rules out CAPS dumping disk/KryoFlux free 3.7 dumps as it relies on libcapsimage.so.5 for that.
I tried to build a native windows binary wayback when but had no luck (caps=y make fails).

There is the Linux subsystem thingie in 10 you could try or you could install a Linux distro of your choice in a VM and install it there, that's what I did and it works like charm.

I use the Linux subsystem in Win10, and it works fine.

It's a native Linux distro, do you mean the files after you've pulled and ran the make commands?

The readme says it can be built on OSX but it failed instantly on my system. Sigh. I wish these kinds of projects were more consistent in releasing binaries.

I never got this to compile on OSX either.

Sorry, i forgot that these are cmd programs not gui.
Use in command prompt

raw to ipf:

disk-analyse --format=xxxxx file.raw file.ipf

open formats in txt editor and find correct value.

Ex.
disk-analyse --format=Turrican turrican.raw turrican.ipf

format name is case sensitive: Turrican not turrican

Good build instructions for disk-analyse on WSL (Windows Subsystem For Linux) can be found at:

Finally, thank you!

I will have to give this a try to convert an existing disk from raw to ipf which conveniently was in your example

UPDATE: I STILL cannot get it to convert .raw (which I believe is CT Raw) to IPF/SCP:

"T0.0-9.1: AmigaDOS
T10.0-39.1: Unformatted*
T40.0-40.1: AmigaDOS
T41.0-79.1: Unformatted*
T80.0-83.1: Unformatted
** WARNING: 138 tracks are damaged or unidentified!"

The image works in WinUAE so I know the game is valid, but it will not convert. Tried HxC by changing extension from .raw to .CT/.CTR and still no success.

UPDATE 2:
Nevermind - for some reason it was not working but then all of a sudden it worked. Thank you acd2001 for generating this compiled version - can you enlighten me what you did to create it in a walkthrough process? lol
