SAMdisk is a portable disk image utility. It specialises in reading and writing most PC-compatible floppy media, including many copy-protected formats.
This code base is still very much a work in progress, and expected to be incomplete and buggy for a little while longer.
Despite being based on the SAMdisk 3 source code, the disk core has been completely rewritten for improved flexibility. This has resulted in a temporary loss of some features -- most notably Windows floppy disk writing via fdrawcmd.sys. Some and disk image formats are also missing, and some made be read-only.
Once the missing functionality has been restored it will be released officially as SAMdisk 4.0.
The latest code builds under Windows, Linux and macOS, and should be portable to other systems. Building requires a C++ compiler with C++17 support, such as Visual Studio 2017 , g++ 7, or Clang 5.
All platforms require the CMake build system. Windows users can use the Open Folder option in Visual Studio 2017 or later to trigger the built-in CMake generator. A number of optional libraries will be used if detected at configuration time.
Windows developers may wish to install vcpkg and add the zlib, bzip2 and liblzma packages. They will be found by CMake and automatically linked by the VS2017 project. See the official site for details.
Install the CAPSimage library for IPF/CTRaw/KFStream/Draft support, and the FTDI) library for SuperCard Pro device support. libusb or WinUSB will be used for KryoFlux device support, depending on the platform.
The SAMdisk source code is released under the MIT license.
