CPC6128 + HxC problems

Post by Wawavoum »

Hello,
I just make some tests with my CPC 6128 and an up to date SD HxC.
Every hfe file I made 2 or 3 years ago are still working well into the HxC.
Now I have prepared a dsk file which works into Mame and also on the CPC into a FlashFloppy Gotek.
But the hfe file I made with it (W64 HxCFloppyEmulator v2.14.4.1) did not works into the HxC. Even a Amsdos "CAT" give strange results.
I use the custom "standard 3" Amstrad CPC" disk layout. load the dsk file, I see then "Raw image - 40 track(s) 1 side(s)", and finally export into hfe.
Every hfe made by this way actually did not works...
What am I doing wrong ?
Also get a description of the Amstrad floppy layout I can input by hand instead of the custom layout will help.
Thanks and regards.
Philippe

ps : both files dsk and hfe are here under joined

Hello,
I don't/can't provide any support to flashfloppy users...
But :
Amstrad DSK aren't raw files 😉. This format has multiples headers tracks and sectors descriptors.
So don't use the raw loader for amstrad edsk/dsk files. Just use the "Load" button or drag & drop it to the main window. That's all.

The download of the SD card HxC floppy emulator of the BETA software doesn't work.
I checked over the last weeks, still it doesn't download the BETA completely. Always some part missing.
Please help! :-)

No. The link is working for sure. The problem is on your side.
(certificate issue on windows 7 ? Antivirus false positive ? bad firewall / router ? outdated browser ?)
