Just got the HXC 2001, I have created the config file and tried different jumper settings however my cpc6128 does not see the drive.

So I do need a simple join the dots guide.

Step 1. Formatted the SD
Step 2 created the HXDFES config file
Step 3 What jumper settings do I need to get the CPC to see the floppy emulator as the A:drive?
Step 4 What is the ideal COnfig file settings?

This Is how I have set the jumpers on the floppy emulator as I think the manual states it should be fro a Drive B for the 6128
