.STX to HFEv3 problem

Post by RobyF » Fri Aug 17, 2018 9:15 am

Hello, i made an image of a protected floppy perfectly working in Hatari (falcon setup) and in steem (well, it bomb like on real ste and physical floppy, but that's correct, since it search for dsp) and i'm trying to convert to hfev3 without luck. FloppyEmulator soft doesn't produce any file. I'm using latest version downloadable from the web page. Any help is appreciated.
Ps: sorry for my english

The image is made by me with pasti of an original copy protected floppy disk. I'm using a gotek unit, with 3.1.30.1a firmware. Floppy Emulator soft (2.1.11.1) create hfe and hfev2 image files ok, but copy protection check fail, so i tried hfev3 but it doesn't create any file. If you want to take a look at the stx image this is the link, thank you!

Now it convert the file without problem :). Sadly the copy protection check (hidden security track on physical floppy) fails again, asking to insert floppy disc in drive a... Is there some hope that in the future this kind of protection can be replicated in the converted hfe image?
Thank you again for your work!!

The copy protection should already pass. But the fix in the dll wasn't "good". I have fixed the thing this morning. i hope to make a pre release this week.

Great! This little software it's the only reason that i can't replace the floppy disc device with a gotek one.
