EMAX-II "Please Insert Disk"

Post by Demokid »


I'm very sorry for asking the same question again but I'm new to floppy emulators.
I just recently bought an Emax-II Keyboard (4 mb) with internal HD and got a HxC emulator (SD-card).
The HxC was not installed in the EMAX-II so I installed the emulator, with ID0A set to ON, all others Off.

I downloaded the QuickInstall_FloppyDiskImages and unziped SDHxCFE_Emu_Emax_II.zip.

I copied the following files to the root of the SD-Card:
HXCSDFE.CFG <-- selected 'Normal' config.

I insert the SD-card turn on the EMAX-II. I can hear the HD start and then I get the classic "Please Insert Disk!".

If I use the old floppy drive or turned the floppy cable around on the HxC, the EMAX-II boot from the HD (SCSI ID 2). I can load banks from HD but only the HD can be selected when pushing "Drive Select" button.

Anyone know what I've done wrong?

Kind regards

For the Emax II the switch setting should be ID0-A (1).
Is the floppy ribbon connected correctly ?
Have you selected an file image ?
