Convert .d88 to .HFE

Post by dunwood »

Hi all, how do l actually convert a .d88 file to .HFE format that my emulator can actually read? I have a gotek flashed with HXC firmware in a Original PC8801. the emulator is mounted in a PC80S31

ok, so when i try to get the system to boot from the image it tries for 2 seconds, the led on the emulator changes from "000" to "---" to "000" in a half a second and then it changes to the second drive. i can make it switch back to the emulator, but it fails to bot from the image

The images look fine. You have probably an hardware issue : bad jumper configuration, damaged ribbon, bad usb stick ?
What is the gotek green LED state ?

Sorry for the delay, the light when the cable is connected is dim on, without cable connected the light is off

SO I have looked online and found the same floppy drive unit that I have that has a HXC Floppy emulator working in it. Is there anything special that I need to do to make it work? is it a straight thru wire adapter or do I need to change the wiring around?
