HXC in Ensoniq SD1 questions. Help needed please

Post by Rich » Thu Oct 29, 2015 12:42 am

Hi.

I want to install an HXC SD in my SD1 and although I have reasonable electronic skills and am confident I can actually fit it into the synth myself I get lost in the Software side of things, I have followed some of the threads but most just goes straight over my head so please bear with me.

I have read the Step by Step guide and think I understand some of it.

First questions is what extra hardware do I need to convert my SD1 floppies to SD card.

I have a Mac running OSX and an old PC laptop but no 3.5 drive.
Will this work with an external 3.5 drive for my Mac or PC ?

Any help much appreciated.

No. You need an internal drive into a PC :

I can also image you disk too if you want. How many disks have you ?

Many thanks Jeff.

I have read the Step by Step and once I have a drive I will give it a try ( I'd like to be able to do it if I get SD drives for my other gear with floppies).

If it's too much for me I'll get back to you.

Cheers

Hi Jeff.

I have 10 disks I need transferring from 3.5 Ensoniq VFX/SD1 format to SD card.

Let me know what you would want to do the hard work for me before I start buying hardware I may never use again.

Cheers.

Jeff ?

Is there a PM button (I can't seem to find one) on here so I can contact you directly ? ?

Ahh ah.

Got it working and it's as good as I hoped.

I'll be posting details on the Ensoniq users group on Facebook and anyone needing it can look for help installing the HXC drive into an SD1 there.

Many thanks to Jeff for all the help.

I never thought to look for an Ensoniq users group on Facebook (or anywhere). I'll have to check it out. I'm determined to figure out how to do the transfer myself (but it's good to know there's help out there).
