Document FluxEngine testing.

2019-07-11 
the FluxEngine creator notified me that he had fixed some bugs, and that ND format 17b floppies was reading fine for him now, so I needed to test that as well. I updated the firmware and software to the latest from the Github repository (master branch), set up a 5.25 inch floppy drive and started testing. Torfinn (talk) 14:23, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
first try
tingo@kg-bsbox:~/personal/projects/psoc/fluxengine/tmp$ ../fluxengine read ibm -s :t=0-76 --retries=0 -o test-nd-525-210523g02-xx-01d.image

Good sectors: 1208/1232 (98%)
Missing sectors: 24/1232 (1%)
Bad sectors: 0/1232 (0%)
77 tracks, 2 heads, 8 sectors, 1024 bytes per sector, 1232 kB total

try with --revolutions=2 to see if it improves the reading

tingo@kg-bsbox:~/personal/projects/psoc/fluxengine/tmp$ ../fluxengine read ibm -s :t=0-76 --retries=0 --revolutions=2 -o test-nd-525-210523g02-xx-01d_r2.image

a clean image. Nice!

tingo@kg-bsbox:~/personal/projects/psoc/fluxengine/tmp$ ~/bin/ndfs -t test-nd-525-250305m05-xx-01d_r2.image

and ndfs can list it (I also tested extracting the files and that works too). I went on read more images, some were ok, and some were not. Torfinn (talk) 14:23, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
