Just a quick feedback to share with you my experience with mounting The GOTEK Hxc USB Floppy emulator on an Akai s950.
After two days of struggle Its now working like a charm!
Pls follow these instructions:
1-If you have the possibility to do so, load and save a few prg and sample on the original floppy drive to be sure that all capacitors are working fine and there is no dry joints.
2-Open the beast and replace the original floppy drive by a GOTEK Hxc USB Floppy emulator (black version looks great!). Do not power the s950 before step 5
3-Take you USB stick and format it FAT32
4-Drag and Drop the latest firmware of HXC USB into the stick(http://hxc2001.com/download/floppy_driv ... rmware.zip
5-Put the stick into the s950 and power it up while holding the two buttons on the GOTEK EMULATOR.
6-Power Off the s950 and put the usb stick into your computer
7-Keep the firmware on it and just drop the INDEXED version of the .CFG file (HXCSDFE.CFG) and some proper floppy img named DSKA0000.HFE , DSKA0001.HFE, DSKA0002.HFE etc, you have to name them that way to scroll from 000 to 001 etcs.. I took the .HFE models from the Quick Install Disk Images (SDHxCFE_Akai_S950), and the .CFE In the indexed subfolder there: http://hxc2001.free.fr/floppy_drive_emu ... l#download
8-Put the stick in the S950 and enjoy life!
I love you all,
