Mirage USB floppy conversion issues

Post by gilhelm » Mon Feb 01, 2016 1:43 am

So I bought a USB floppy drive emulator. Installation was a breeze but getting anything running on the software side has been torturous. I'm no idiot but it seems like the instructions for actually using this thing are fragmented, leading to other websites and downloading drivers for drives that don't exist. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around this. Are there simplified instructions for getting this all up and running? I can't even seem to the the FDTI 22XX Drivers installed even though it looks like they did. I even used the driver signer program and followed the restart instructions. I just don't get it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(Using windows 7 by the way)

This seems to be the clearest procedure for turning the floppies into images and getting them onto the card. Start on page 14.

You will also need this driver installed in your PC.

Once you have the images on the SD card you will need to change the .XXX to whichever format the Mirage needs. I did this by clicking on the titles and re-naming the files on the card and re-saving them.
