Setting Up Usb floppy emulator on a pc-9821

Post by xybots » Tue Nov 26, 2013 10:54 am

Hi everyone

I have both the usb version of the the floppy emulator and a sd card version which i made when it first was released, i want to connect either board to my nec pc-9821 xa200 computer.

Can any one help me set up the usb board to use with my pc98 what setting etc i need and does any one know what setting i need if i want to use the sd card floppy drive board i made if it can work with it.

Thanks for your help

Brian

Hi Xybots,

You and I have spoken before on another forum, but for others benefit as well, I posted a possible related solution in this thread here.

Take care!
