Loading Akai S900 programs onto S2000

Post by TheBeachBorg »

Hey,

I have read in multiple places, including the S2000 manual, that the S2000 can load S900 floppies. Is that so? When attempting to load my s900 programs the S2000 says "No Disk!"


Both machines are equipped with HXC floppy emulators. The floppies images for the S900 have been made under S900 OS4. The S2000 boots from OS2.0
The same result occurs when attempting to load a program with S900 OS 1.2

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hello, I also have an s900, and wanted to put a gotek in my 2800 but will the 2800 read the hfe files from the s900. Thank you for your time Jeff. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

yes it will read S900 disk images. you may have to change the floppy interface mode.

By any chance would you have any recommendations as to which interface mode. 950 dd or HD?
