Good news ! I've make working HxC with this sampler !
But there are some traps !
- Once original floppy device is removed, don't reconnect
original ribbon cable in the normal way with the HxC ! Don't use keyed tab connector, pin 1 (edge color) is incorrect position ! Return the IDC connector from ribbon cable so that egde color (pin 1) matchs with HxC pin 1 marking on PCB.
- Then configure in .hfe file or directly with Hxc menu <Interface type> = PC HDD ! Not shugart !
It works well with image files made from floppy or image made from ESI sampler with format function !
