whoo 3 machines confirmed to works! Thanks for the feedback!

Same questions:
How exactly ? (Floppy dump ? Floppy image used ? Jumper settings / Floppy interface mode ? The floppy cable need to be reversed ?)
:D :?:

(and don't hesitate to post some pictures/videos ;) )

My little "how to":
--------------------------------------------------------------------
ALESIS DataDisk SQ (OS Vers. 2.10) floppy disk file format:

Track Type: MFM, Two sides floppy, Auto GAP3, 80 Tracks, Sector IC Start: 1, Sectors size: 1024,
5 sectors per track, RPM: 300, Bitrate: 250000, Total sector: 800, Total size: 819200
--------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Dump any ALESIS's DataDisk floppy disk with HcX's Floppy disk dump!
2. Export the image to SDCard and don't forget storing it to harddisk for further use

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HFE file interface mode: Auto (IBM PC 720kB)

Hardware Jumper settings:
Atari ST/Amiga/Shugart jumper settings: Drive A, ID0, no reversed floppy cable!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That's it! :)

Hi,
I am making my 1st post and I am totally green to quite a bit here. I just purchased an Alesis Datadisk ,it' in the mail and I want to get away from Floppies right away. I am hopping you can help me a bit with a brief tutorial and ill try to figure out the rest.
I am about to buy a USB to Floppy drive hardware emulator on Ebay. Is it possible to give me a tutorial for dummies to get me started on how I setup for an Alesis Datadisk using the HXc Floppy Drive Emulator ?
Thanks for the Help !
Garry
