To insert my old 1200 floppy disks transfer them to PC/Mac and then convert them for HxC?

Many thanks

It won't work. As far as I know, there are only two ways to do this - using Kryoflux hardware (and an original SP1200 floppy drive I assume), see this post - http://forum.kryoflux.com/viewtopic.php?t=590

or physically connecting the old SP1200 and HxC drive together in the SP1200 using this method - http://torlus.com/floppy/forum/viewtopi ... =14&t=1062

Good luck!

Thanks for the reply!
What a shame that is.
In my naive mind I thought it would be easy enough to trranfer the on to PC and then EXMP them in.
Thats what I did with my Emulator 2 CDROMS

Suppose Ill have to leave it.
Kyroflux isn't insane expensive but I cant justify buying right now. Have way more pressing things.

Would anybody have any of the standard drum machines, 909, 808, 707, Linn etc that I could please have in SDcard format?!

I would be so grateful!!

Many thanks
