What DroiD64 can do

DroiD64 is a graphical filemanager for D64, D67, D71, D80, D81, D82 and T64 files.
This is a filemanager for disk-images suitable for the Commodore 64 and others. These disk-images are usually stored as .D64 files having a size of 174848 bytes. The idea with DroiD64 is to make life easier for Commodore 64 fans, especially for those using MAC and Linux systems as there are tools available for Windows anyway.

Supported image file formats:

  • D64 - C1541
  • D67 - C2040
  • D71 - C1571 readonly
  • D80 - C8050
  • D81 - C1581
  • D82 - C8250 readonly
  • T64 - C1530 readonly
  • CP/M readonly on D64, D71 and D81
  • All formats above as gzipped
  • Zip files
  • LNX

Disk operations

  • New disk
  • Open disk
  • Show BAM of disk
  • Rename disk
  • Show hexdump of disk block
  • Print hexdump of disk block
  • Validate disk image

File operations

Other features

  • Use MySQL database for making D64 images search able
  • interaction with other programs (for example: cbm4linux or Vice)
  • Reorder and sort files on disk image
  • Browse local file system

What it can't do

DroiD64 cannot transfer disk images to real floppy hardware. There are other programs for that purpose like StarCommander and OpenCBM. DroiD64 can to some extent use these and other command line tools.

System requirements

Java runtime 1.7 or newer (Download Oracle's Java runtime environments at http://java.oracle.com.) Download Oracle Java-runtime here

As DroiD64 is written in Java, it should run on every platform Java runs on (for example Linux, MacOS X, OS/2, Unix, VMS and Windows) :)

Installation instructions

  • Step 1: Download and install a Java runtime environment if you have none installed.
  • Step 2: Download the latest version of DroiD64 and extract it to any directory of your choice.
  • Step 3: Create a link to start droiD64. (This step may be skipped on some operating systems.)
    This may be the hardest part for people not familiar with Java applications.
    Make your link, batch-file, shell-script or whatever somehow look like the following commandline:

    java -jar [directory]/droiD64-[version].jar
