SAMdisk is a command-line disk image utility.
Read and write almost any soft-sectored floppy disk format compatible with the PC floppy controller, including some traditionally copy-protected formats. Also supports hard disk imaging to and from HDF and raw formats.
Low-level floppy device access requires the fdrawcmd.sys driver to be installed.

The following versions support disk images, but not real floppy devices. However, disk imaging is still possible using a SuperCard Pro, KryoFlux, or DiscFerret device. Create an image using the device's own software, then use SAMdisk to convert that to a specific output image type.
Ensure your BIOS floppy drive type is set correctly, or to the closest available type. Setting a non-1.44M type will reduce the head stepping rate to avoid missed pulses, and disable use of the disk-change line. This will often be needed for older floppy drive units.
