What is faulty ? The Cpc, the floppy cable ?
Please respond to this :

Does that help narrow it down at all?
No this is worst : quite unlogical. Can you make a picture of your cpc internal connection & hxc connection + switch ?
Also if possible try the emulator on another machine (PC...).
All needed files are at the download section.
Have you tried what i suggest you 6 months ago ? And where is the picture ?
I still waiting for some feedback...
My bet is that the hxc is working perfectly... As many time before
Seriously : Please use a normal PC floppy cable with edge connector and follows my connection picture.
Stop using these third party CPC cable if the seller is not able to provide you a documentation or something clear enough to make the proper connection.
One thing is sure : Each HxC Floppy Emulator is tested by Lotharek. I am not sure about these cables...
Also think to clean-up the contacts of the 30 years old CPC edge connector with alcohol and disconnect the internal drive (both power & floppy cables !).
