I've seen two cases where a dumped image is too large because of invalid sectors wedged into the gaps. They will then work on emulators that aren't picky about track sizes.

are you sure they're invalid sectors, not there because that's how the format represents copy protected tracks? I think they include multiple copies of weak sectors so that the emulator can read a different copy each time and gets different ones if seeking forward / back the first time (unless i'm thinking of a different format)

I know what was meant to be a simple format was extended to support the most common cpc disk protections at least.

hi

it's a proper dump that i have make myself with a kryoflux

it's a edsk format not dsk witch is old and not use today with new dump as a make

i have also create a editor for Amstrad dsk as i can say this dsk is good

just it has all gaps for each sector and the track 0 length is 5805 bytes not only 4608 bytes (9x512)

it is not copy protected just full dump with gaps

There is a hard limit of 100.000 bytes i also encountered:

Code
build_pc_track_mfm(track, side, image, 100000, tr.number_of_sector, sects, tr.gap3_length);


If you just sampled more data than the 'dsk_dsk' routine can handle (no copy protection assumed), it should be possible to cut the gaps (automagically or in a disk editor).

Olivier Galibert is the author of the 'dsk_dsk' importer. Kevin Thacker and Barry Rodewald wrote the Amstrad emulation.

You might have luck contacting Olivier Galibert in your own tongue - or just upload the image so folks can have a look.

[EDIT: to increase the limit is not a good idea. Upload to Dropbox or a good free file hoster and post the link here]

The disks you uploaded in the previous post had FDC errors and appear to have a very non-standard track layout.
They also utilise increased track densities to cram more data on a floppy than usual.

You can verify that with 'Disk Image Manager' (which is freely available).

To the right (green) is a PD disk i downloaded for verification, with 40 properly formated tracks.

Are you trying to work with a damaged disk - or import a copy protected disk?

The current importer for *.DSK seems a bit ill prepared for density variations. I am by far no CPC expert, though. smile

i can confirm that this disk is almost normal

http://www.cpc-power.com/SectorView.php?fiche=1058&slot=10&rang=0 click on map tab

no track density changed

just track 3 is unformat

and protected track is track 4 (sector size 4 but only have 100 bytes length take st1 and st2 number &20 checksum error)

this edsk is a good dump from a working real disk

all cpc emulator like caprice, sugarbox, and other play good with this game (Harry and Harry from ere informatique)
