[SOLVED] Re: New HxC Files selector/Manager available !

I have confirmed it is a corrupt config file, whats causing it is still unknown, when a USB drive is not recognised by HxC I replace the configuration file on next boot it is recognised. :shrug: Update your firmware to the last WIP/alpha version : http://hxc2001.com/download/floppy_drive_emulator/H...

Re: Help setting up STOS

Purchased STOS for my son way long ago, with STACK. Came across the package last year cleaning up and refreshed just was it was. Think I'd read in the manual user agreement games created with the package couldn't be distributed, either that or sold. If so, that still the case? Not a gamer at all, b...

Easiest way to get files to the HxC?

I'm a HxC USB noob, Im fine with getting access to blank HFE disks and moving files to these,via drag and drop with the DOS Browser, but is there another way to get over sized files/folders on to my Atari's Megafile? Like mounting a temp HD? HxC Mount is SD only?

STOS and TOS 2.06

Hi, is it a good idea to upgrade my STE 2.06 from TOS 1.62 to 2.06? Or will this cause issues for STOS? I recall my original STE was 1.62. :cheers:

Re: Advice on disc emulator and recomendations

Hi Guys,

Recently bought a 520 STe and ordered a Gotek HxC USB off eBay, can someone confirm for me the following? Because I've seen conflicting information.

- I can write to disk images?
- HxC Mount only works with the SD version not the USB for Hard disk images?

Any help would be appreciated!
