Unable to read converted img file

Post by mojorific » Sat Nov 15, 2014 3:56 am

Having some difficulty with my HxC unit trying to read a flight simulator 2.0 disk image. I have the original disks.

I converted the image file to hfe, but when I run the fs.com file, it hangs. It works fine with dosbox however.

Any ideas?

fs214.img

You can also run it with 'fs e' or 'fs'. Booting from the disk also hangs the same way.

I think the fs.com file is the only file, but there is more data hidden in other tracks that the file reads from. It's a way of copy protecting the contents i think.

It's a Tandy 1000 TL/2 with HXC Emulator installed in a 5 1/4" drive slot.

Ok just tried.
You must use the "Load Raw Image" function to load this one with the "Standard 3"5 DOS HD Floppy Disk Layout"

Here is the working image :
