Tektronix TDS3052

Post by DAVIDT »

Hi

I recently purchased a slim HDXC for my tektronix scope but can't get the scope to recognize it! I've tried most things on the forum including putting a 1K R8 resistor and using the "special" Tektronix_TDS image - all to noavail. The floppy LEDs comes on and it make appropriate sounds but the scope just says it is incompatible (the scope works with the normal floppy drive so it's not the scope hardware). Any ideas?

Hello

I have the same Problem with the TDS3054.

I tried the PC Floppy-images.
The Emulator seems to recognize the images on the SD-card but the scope shows me an Error "Unsupported Disk". When I try to format the disk on the scope a message appears "Massstorageerror"

Then I also tried to create an empty Floppy-image with the HXC software. Now the scope accepts the "disk" but in the menu it shows me an empty disk with 0 Byte free storage. When I try to save something to the Disk, it shows me an error.
The new Message is "Disk missing Please insert a disk in the Drive".

The scope works normal with the old floppy-drive so there shouldn't be damaged hardware.
Does someone have an Idea how I can create or find a diskimage that the scope can read.
