5¼" and 3½" floppies are used with the following formats:
|Number of tracks per side||Number of sides||Number of tracks (total)||Number of sectors||Number of bytes|
.trd files: TR-DOS disk images
Diskettes can be dumped to
.trd files, which are plain sector-by-sector headerless dumps (the same idea as
/dev/fd0). Each sector is 256 bytes, each track contains 16 sectors. Tracks are arranged in the same order as "logical tracks" in TR-DOS: 0th track on 0th side, 0th track on 1st side, 1st track on 0th side, 1st track on 1st side, …. If remaining sectors at the end of floppy are unused,
.trd file can be less than actual floppy size. These files are supported by most ZX Spectrum emulators.
