Atari ST Supported File Formats

Post by ikklepaul » Mon Jul 23, 2018 10:33 am

Hi,

Can anyone confirm which file formats are supported by the HxC firmware.

I have just received my Gotek and believe it has flash floppy preinstalled.

I have downloaded the HxC Manager which is working but unable to load .MSA files on .ST files

Does the HxC support MSA file format? before i go down the whole process of purchasing a license and flashing.

Also in regards to flashing I have seen two methods one using a serial interface and one using a usb

Will the usb method work for flashing the Gotek with HxC?

I'm hoping HxC will bring with it support for MSA so I don't have to convert my collection

Thanks

Paul

Yes though the HFE format. Use the batch converter to convert automatically the collection.

yes - indirectly. But i prefer that you use the standard serial method.

Not right now.
Use the batch converter to automatically convert the whole collection. Your PC will do the job once, not you ;)
