Format a USB stick as EPS 800kb to then use on a FDD-UDD-STD144

Post by gkmaia » Fri Jan 03, 2020 8:51 pm

I am struggling to get it right. Did read several posts and still confused. I have just one question. Sorry if it is dumb...

I just bought a FDD-UDD-STD144 and all I want to do at this stage is to add a EPS249OS.hfe image to my USB stick.

As i am running windows XP what SOFTWARE do I need to format my USB stick to the ensoniq format and then copy the image above to the stick?

I think you can't install the HxC firmware on this unit. This doesn't seems to be a Gotek clone. But Please take a picture of the pcb and share it here. Then we will be sure.

Thanks Jeff.

How the GOTEKs look like? So I am sure to buy the right one this time.

On your above picture this is the drives with the reference starting by SFR. The SFR1M44-U100K for example is fine with the HxC firmware.

Thanks Jeff.

should i buy the SFR1M44-U100K (1.44mb) or the SFRM72-TU100K (720k) for a Ensoniq EPS or being 1.44 vs 720 it makes no difference in regards to compatibility?
