Writing Floppies from Disk Images on X68000

You will need a working hard drive setup, a way to transfer files to it and the following software:

  1. Copy disk images in XDF format to the directory where you unpacked the archive
  2. Insert 2HD floppy disk in drive 0 and execute !Format.bat
  3. Rename the file which you want to transfer to DISK.2HD (press “R” key in LHES to rename)
  4. Reinsert the floppy disk and execute !Write.bat

Note: You can use drive 1 to restore the image files. Just change the .bat files to the following:





9SCFMT allows you to use the following formats as well:

  • 0 - 2HS (9sec/trk 1440k)
  • 1 - 2HD (8sec/trk 1232k) Standard X68000 format
  • 2 - 2HDE (9sec/trk 1440k)
  • 3 - 2HC (15sec/trk 1200k)
  • 4 - 2HT (1599k)
  • 5 - 2DD/9 (9sec/trk 720k)
  • 6 - 2DD/8 (8sec/trk 640k)
  • B - 2HQ (18sec/trk 1440k) IBM 1.44MB 2HD format
  • Z - 2HDE98 (FDISK.SYS v0.98 compatible)
  • 7 - Initialize FAT
  • 8 - Initialize IPL
