Cannot select drive

Post by Cfbsoftware » Sat Oct 20, 2018 1:05 am

I am using the REV F - HXC SD Floppy Drive Emulator which I purchased from Lotharek a couple of weeks ago. I have installed it on a 1982 Sage II MC68000 computer which I am restoring. It works really well with a single drive. However, unfortunately, I have not been able to select a second drive using the pushbuttons on the emulator control panel.

The only copy of the User manual I have been able to locate is seven years old (Rev 2.1 - 14/08/2011). Is that the latest one available? The 'Select a drive' message shown in the photo Figure 10. Disk drive menu selector never appears on my display.

The SDCard HxC Floppy Emulator settings I am using are these. These are the actual settings loaded from the in the config file HXCSDFE.CFG that is on the SD Card.

How can I select a different disk image to use as the second drive after I have selected the disk image for the first drive?

On the emulator : Select the drive A image, Then make a long press on the select button (the middle one), select the drive B and choose the second image.

Thanks - worked like a charm! You can now add the Sage II to your list of supported computers. There is more info about this computer including disk images at:

I'm hoping to eventually replace the HxC with the original full-height floppy drive. I've just installed it temporarily to allow me to make 320K floppy disks from the 640K masters using the actual right-hand floppy drive as drive B. Once that is done I'll install the HxC permanently on a PC to use whenever I want to make disk images of floppies onto an SD card.
