HXC2001 and long filenames

Post by Jimbronie »

Hey all,

It has been a couple of years that I touched my ST, but I am getting it up and running again.

Quick question. I have an HXC2001 external model, and I updated the firmware and autoloader. Now, I am having issues with loading images with long filenames. Does the HXC firmware not support long filenames? Or is there a setting I need to fix?

Thanks!
Craig

Long file names are indeed supported. Can you be more specific about the issue ? Which firmware version and loader version are you using ? What is the issue ?

Thanks for the reply.

I am using the latest firmware that is on the site along with the latest Atari st loader. Firmware: 1.8.2.40 Loader: 1.89a

I included a few pics of the files I am trying to load. It always comes up as a bad file and when looking at the drive 1 slot it doesn’t show the entire filename.

You are trying to load ST files. This emulator support only HFE files.

Duh! That’s what it was. Told ya it was a few years. All is good now. Just batch converted those files.

Thanks for the help!
