Catweasel Floppy Read/Write Tools

The Catweasel Floppy Read/Write Tools are a set of tools for owners of Catweasel MK1 ISA and Catweasel MK3/MK4 PCI universal floppy disk controllers. cw2dmk reads several kinds of floppy disk, some of which ordinary PC controllers have trouble with, and save them in the DMK disk image format used by TRS-80 emulators. It can also handle any disk written using a Western Digital 177x/179x floppy disk controller, a PC-style NEC765-compatible controller, or a Digital Equipment Corporation RX02 controller. dmk2cw writes any DMK image back to a floppy. jv2dmk and dmk2jv3 convert images between DMK and JV1 and JV3 formats without requiring Catweasel hardware.
