Can't load .hfe banks and cannot update firmware

Post by markcamp »

Hello

I have an Emax II
I have installed the HxC floppy emulator.
It reads "FlashFloppy v3.29" on power up

Using HxCFloppy emulator software on the Mac, I have converted some Emax sound files to .hfe and stored them onto a thumb drive.

When I try to load them into my emax it says "Bad Bank On Disk"

I am trying to update the firmware of the HxC to see if that will solve the issue. I have placed "HxCFEUSB_V5_2_1_2a_OSD_U100LQD.UPD" onto the root of the thumb drive. Power up the emax with the 2 buttons held on the HxC and it says "FF Update Flash [E01]" and the firmware is not updated.

Any help appreciated to get this working.

Thanks!

You don't have the hxc firmware on this gotek. The first step to do is to install it : https://hxc2001.com/store/

Thank you for the reply. Installing the firmware is what I am trying to do

Here are the steps I am following:
1. Format thumb drive as DOS Fat32
2. Copy "HxCFEUSB_V5_2_1_2a_OSD_U100LQD.UPD" to root level of the thumb drive
3. Insert the thumb drive into the gotex
4. Hold down the 2 buttons on the gotex
5. Power on the Emax
6. Wait 2 seconds
7. Release the 2 buttons

Results:
The gotex display reads "FF Update Flash [E01]" and the firmware is not updated

Is there something I am missing? Is "E01" some sort of error message?
