VFD for the SD HxC Floppy Emulator !

Post by Jeff » Fri Dec 09, 2011 12:48 am

I have added the HFE support to the Virtual Floppy Drive driver (VFD) :

VFD with HFE files support :
http://hxc2001.com/download/floppy_driv ... fd_hxc.zip

Original software:
http://vfd.sourceforge.net/

This software allows you to open directly HFE files with a FAT/DOS file system under windows like a normal floppy disk drive !

How to install VFD for the SD HxC Floppy Emulator (*.hfe support) ?

-> Start vfdwin.exe
-> Driver -> Browse -> Select the file vfd.sys present in the driver folder. -> Intall -> Start
-> Association -> Check .hfe -> Apply.

The driver is now ready.

To open an HFE file, you have just to double click on it.

Note : Any change are writing back to the hfe file when the disk is unmounted.
To do this vfdwin.exe -> Drive 0 -> Close
OR
Reopen the same hfe file.

Yes VFD is only for MSDOS / PC / FAT (atari st...) type floppy image.

Since ADFOpus is open, i will probably add the library to it ;)
