HxC floppy emulator init_fdc drive 1 error

Post by Unique » Sat May 27, 2017 12:55 pm

Hi all,

After a lot of bashing of head against a wall and some help from Jean-Francois I've managed to get my Gotek somewhat workable, but upon trying to get the HxC floppy emulator software running, it gets past the Workbench screens and into the app but after a few seconds pops up with:

"ERROR: init_fdc drive 1 -> failure while seeking the track 00!"

I've tried 8 different USB sticks, 3 of which appear to work but all give me the same error.

Any suggestions on what I might try next?

Thanks

Interestingly when used in my 520STFM I get a similar screen with an error:

"ERROR: Can't open HXCSDFE.CFG !"

Am I missing something in the structure? The device seems to work fine (it loads the app after all), I'm just copying the 2 files to the root of the FAT32 and FAT formatted USB drives.... I've run through this like 50 times already and don't seem to be randomly stumbling across the issue...

Probably a floppy ribbon issue, or a bad drive id setting.

if you can make a low level dump of your usb stick, this could help me to understand the issue.
