Just a quick note: My SDCard HxC arrived yesterday and works perfectly (thanks!). It already contained the right firmware version. However finding the needed hxcsdfe.cfg was very hard. The manual mentions that I need to copy this file to the SDCard first to make it work, but does not provide a link. I could not find the file in the download section either. I downloaded converter source and prototype firmware in hope for this file. The prototype firmware contained it, but an old version that would not work. I had to go to the forum, find this thread and download the firmware 1.1.0.1 from above link to finally get it working.

May I suggest:
- Putting the current firmare version in the download section
- Mentioning that you need to download this to get the config file.
- Or alternatively putting the config file for download seperately, or distributing it with the converter software

You can generate it with the windows software (HxCFloppyEmulator.exe).

Bonsoir,

Je vais m'exprimer en Français car mon anglais est trop mauvais.
J'ai reçu le HxC SD hier .

J'ai rencontré deux problèmes tout d'abord en insérant ma carte SD Sandisk 2gb formatée en fat32 l'afficheur m'indique qu'elle n'est pas présente.
En la formatant en fat la carte est détectée mais me demande le fichier SDHXCFE.CFG alors que j'ai copié le fichier HXCSDFE.CFG sur la carte comme indiqué sur la documentation.

Mon Firmware est le V1.1.0.1

Que dois je faire ?

Merci.

je n'ai pas eu ce problème. As-tu généré le fichier avec le logiciel hxcfloppyemulator (menu drive) ?

Le formatage doit être en FAT32 et non pas en FAT.
