Welcome to the registered Disk2FDI features and requirements page!

You can access more Disk2FDI pages from the main page.

The registered version of Disk2FDI is currently at version 1.0α4.

In addition to the functionalities found in the trial version, the registered version features:

  • Log file creation to keep trace of the information printed on screen
  • Reading retry when bad sectors are found
  • Reading using a dedicated cable connected to a fast parallel port

The Disk2FDI cable, along with the registered version of Disk2FDI, bring the following improvements over the trial version:

  • Forensic quality disk image creation to the dedicated FDI format, to accurately image original protected disks or disks with non-standard formats
  • Works with any floppy disk supported in the trial version, requiring only 1 disk drive
  • Commodore 1541 (".D64") disks reading with either a low or high density (even unmodified) 5.25" disk drive
  • Apple 400K and 800K GCR (Apple //, Macintosh, ...) disks reading to the DiskCopy 4.2 ".DC" format

To benefit from these, the following is required:

  • A Pentium® processor or better
  • A free parallel port, preferably from a dedicated PCI parallel port card
  • A Disk2FDI cable that you can build yourself with the instructions available here, along with:
  • A registered version of Disk2FDI
