Samdisk v3.8.8 by Simon Owen, Amstrad CPC disks tranfers on PC


SAMdisk v3.8.8 by Simon Owen is out since the 8th July.

The utility supports transfers between floppy disks and disk images, and is designed to work with almost any soft-sectored disk format compatible with the PC floppy controller, including some copy-protected formats.

Low-level floppy device access requires the fdrawcmd.sys driver to be installed.

  • Added D88 support for 1D and 1DD disk types
  • Added .1dd output extension for 1D/1DD in D88 container
  • Added cylinder count detection to D88 image reading
  • Added support for .2d raw format
  • Fixed destructor crash bug in gcc builds (Linux and Mac)
  • Fixed TR-DOS false-positives by requiring .trd extension
