Emulator II + USB emulator... Problems... any ideas?

Post by sharkytowers » Thu Apr 04, 2019 9:51 am

I installed a USB floppy emulator (says "DM Systems Floppy Emulator" on the front) along with a cable I purchased from a nice gentleman on eBay. I'm getting "Disk format error". I have put it in the 1st drive bay and still have the 2nd floppy connected. I have used the disk images from the Quickinstall_FloppyDiskImages.zip file and renamed the HXCSDFE.CFG-normal file. Still no love.

I have tried several different USB sticks. I went ahead and ordered a Rev F SD Emulator as I've decided I'd rather have an SD card, but I would still love to get this working. I'll probably use this floppy emulator in another sampler (I have a DPX1 and an Akai S900). Any help would be appreciated. Maybe there are jumpers I am supposed to set? If I can get it working I'll post a youtube video so others can learn from my trials and tribulations.

Thanks in advance for anyone taking the time to help.

Cheers.

"No USB Stick Found"

version 3.1.23.1a

Push both buttons, the website, etc. I think those are the only relevant pieces of information. I tried to attach a video, but it wouldn't let me.

Thanks for taking the time.

Have you tried the the Emu emulator quickinstall archive ? :

Yes. This is the archive I used on a few different USB sticks. None of them worked. I'm at a loss. I've ordered a Rev F SD card version of the HxC so I'll see if I have better luck with that. Maybe I should flip the floppy/IDE cable?

Ohh... also does anyone know what my jumpers should look like? I bought this unit from someone on eBay expressly for the Emulator, so I assume he set it up correctly (it was purchased along with a "kit" he was selling), but maybe not? I have a message in to him as well.

S0 should be the right setting. (all others jumper removed).
