yes this is nornal if the software is not running. boot the pc, start the software and drag and drop an pc img file (like this one : http://oldfiles.org.uk/powerload/bootdisk/msd710s.zip)jeff, when i connect the hxc to my pc i get: floppy disk fail (40)
the good config with the 188.8.131.52 version is DS1 or DS2 (twisted cable or not).
After this you should be able to explorer the floppy.
yes this is normal . what is the data throughput?edit://usb stats shows traffic all the time even if the pc is not reading something
Yes. but you must reverse the configuration by yourself (ex: DS0 become MTRON and DS1 become DS2 with a twisted cable).does 184.108.40.206 support twisted cables, as usual on pc floppy drives ?
good news ! but this amiga seems to have some problems around the fdc (chip not well plugged ?). Maybe it's the problem since the beginning ?//edit2: i once wrongly connected the cable on the amiga side, it was just on the upper row, instead of both ( i should finally get a better light bulb ) and turned the amiga on. i guess the floppy disk controller is now somehow damaged, and my loved amiga now rendered quite useless.
//edit3: strange, i just tried with a different floppy (a install31.adf copied onto a taped pc disk - now the amigas floppy seems to work again - at least my amiga is still usable)
My advice is to try the emulator on another computer to check if the floppy emulator is ok.
