Hey guys! I just wanted to let you know that I have been trying to use my revision C SD emulator from Lotharek with my FM-77AV40SX and I've been running into some problems. The 3 double density images I have (701,360 bytes (684KB) as a D77, 655,360 bytes (640KB) as an IMG) load no problem and run as they should, but every other disk image I have will convert to HFE no problem but when I try to use them with the FM-77AV40SX they don't work. The machine does acknowledge that a disk is in and tries to read it, but nothing happens. Literally nothing. The machine will just sit with a flashing cursor until you reset it. Normally if no disk is in the machine will boot to basic after about 10 seconds, but when I mount any disk image the machine will just sit forever at a blank screen with a blinking cursor in the left hand corner. I have attached a file with all the FM77 disk images I have, along with the latest English translation of the FM-77AV emulator, can you please look into why this is happening? I don't think the problem is with the software that converts the disk images to HFE format, since if I convert an image to HFE and then convert the HFE to IMG I can load the resulting IMG in an FM-77AV emulator it loads there no problem. To me this shows the problem lies with the firmware. I do not believe it is a problem with copy protection or some similar issue, since even the disk images of F-Basic will not load, with the exception of the final version of F-Basic which comes as a 684KB D77. I also know the disk images are good because I can both boot them on an emulator and use DITT to write them to real floppies and boot them on the machine that way. I will include a set of tools for working with D77/D88 files, as well as the version of DITT I translated as well in case you want to see how the images are on a real disk. Please keep in mind that DITT needs to be run from real mode DOS, not just a command prompt. Please look into this for me. I would really really appreciate it! Thank you very much!
