Re: Glue a disassociated disk?

Thanks for your answer, gilles504. Yes, I'll dump the disk with Kryoflux, but I was more thinking about HxC Floppy Emulator because there is an option to "shift' track in the analyzer tool (see picture below). I tried to use it a few months ago, but I have no idea how to set up it correctly to...

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

HxCmount can also be used more or less like this too. Did I miss something? To my understanding, HxCmount will also mount an image file from the USB drive; but as a hard disk. HxCmount does not allow you to directly access the file system on the USB drive, e.g. launch a PRG that you simply copied o...

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

I use that browser with the flashfloppy firmware, it's nice I tried to buy a copy of your HxC firmware even though I didn't intend to use the rest, just to give you a donation. But it is too difficult for me to figure out :( What is difficult ? Get the legacy HxC Firmware here : http://hxc2001.com/...

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

I didn't realize that the Browser was included within the HCXfloppyemulator. So all that is needed is having everything going thru their browser and place the result on the USB-stick. Nice way to do it. I suppose that it is best to choose a disk size that best resembles the amount of content. Yes t...

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

If you want to use USB sticks directly as a mass storage medium (i.e. run PRGs from it directly), you need some solution like the Unicorn; which requires drivers, though. The big advantage of using a Gotek (with HxC firmware) is that from the computer's perspective it looks just like a floppy drive...

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

Just use the HxC Dos Floppy File Browser , create an 2.5MB floppy disk, add some files to this image (drag&drop) and then export it to the HFE file format :

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

You cannot use 1.44mb mode with an unmodified Atari ST. However you can use HxCMount for huge images. I have 1.44(!) MB HFE-format floppy disk image (i.e. 80 tracks, 2 sides, 18 sectors) that I use with my unmodified ST and a Gotek with HxC firmware. Normal DSHD (1.44MiB) floppy disk drives spin at...

Re: Floppy image selection runnable from harddisk?

If you want to select the files on the fly, don't use the selector software and use an HxC with an LCD screen.
Set it in "normal mode" then you can select directly the HFE files from the device itself.

Re: FlashFloppy vs HxC

My Gotek with HxC firmware works fine in my STE with TOS 1.62. Found that TOS 2.06 caused most game images to not load so switched back to TOS 1.62. I also cannot load .ST disk images with the HxC firmware. I can only load .HFE floppy images. ST files visibility in normal mode fixed in the 3.1.1.3a...

Re: FlashFloppy vs HxC

If HFE is fine, it is not much of a problem. HFE works fine for the HxC firmware. I don't know if FF can handle HFE files with 11 spt, though. I just created an 11 sector (902kb) HFE disk image using the HxC Emulator software and my FlashFloppy Gotek works fine with this disk image. I copied a fold...

Re: FlashFloppy vs HxC

11 tracks..is this a generic limitation to .hfe files aswell? Or limited to direct .st images in case of the FlashFlopy firmware? First of all: 11 sectors per track. Note that Jeff did not write that 11 sectors was the limit. See my 18 sectors per track DD(sic!) HFE image on: https://www.chzsoft.de...

FF firmware doesn't support PASTI/STX nor 11 Sector disk images. I have contacted its author and forwarded any info (mainly DrCoolZic's PDF) I had about these two problem, so it should be corrected. As I looked at the code the main problem was with sector gaps. Since this is a "VS" thread...
