Hxc and filenames

Post by ZogZog » Sun Sep 22, 2019 6:15 pm

Hello,
I just find my old STE, so I decided to install a Gotek with HxC firmware.
Everything works fine, except one thing :
I format a Usb stick in fat32 and put in floppy drive emulator. I put in some folders the compilations of various groups well known.
When I select the disk and reboot with F7 the atari go back to the floppy emulator ? I find a solution, I must rename all the files with less ti 12 caracters.
What I done wrong ? I see peoples using disk images with long filnames ?

Thanks for your help guys

Which firmware version are you using ?
Which file selector version are you using ?

Can you share one file causing this issue (without modify its name) ?

Also : Take care to take the CFG file from the firmware archive :

https://hxc2001.com/download/floppy_dri ... rmware.zip

I tried the CFG file in the firmware archive, no result.

Here is a file :

Yes with the v3.4.7.12a and newer.

Are you sure that this is the same issue ?
