It is possible that the Oberheim format description still missing in the list. Which file image are you trying to load ? (Note : DPX file format is not a raw file format -> Just drag & drop or Load the image !)
Thanks for getting back so quickly! So, I've got a bunch of DPX format floppies (not EII or Mirage; actual DPX floppies) that I've ripped using Omniflop. Now I've got a bunch of IMG files that I'm trying to convert to HFE via the HxC software. In that past when creating HFE files I've opened my IMG files as RAW, selected the correct predefined disk layout, and done the batch conversion. This has worked well for my Ensoniq Mirage and EPS floppy images. However, as I mentioned I'm not seeing the DPX in the predefined disk layouts, and as k-tracker mentioned in the first post, the DPX uses mixed sector sizes so I can't create a custom profile.
If I just open the IMG files with the "Load" button on the software (as opposed to treating it as a RAW image) it opens just fine, but the HFE files it creates can't be read by the DPX (they just get stuck at 000/080). Also, the HFE files created through this process are 2.08 mb, which is larger than the HFE files I've gotten from the RAW process I described (1.91 mb).
It seems like the solution would be to create a custom predefined disk layout for the DPX, so I can open the IMG files as RAW data and create the HFE from that, right? But let me know if there's anything else I should try. Thank you!
