HxC Floppy Emulator: Software v2.1.6.0

January 23rd, 2017 No comments

The HxC Floppy Drive Emulator is a software and hardware system created by jfdn aka Jeff.

The aim of this project is to replace the floppy disk drive by an electronic device emulating the floppy disk drive (list of supported Computer/Hardware).

There are two differents emulators:

  • A USB version which allows to connect the floppy disk drive interface of the computer to a PC via a USB cable.
  • A SDCARD version which allows to emulate floppy disks which images are stored in a SDCARD.

Release notes for the HxCFloppyEmulator software v2.1.6.0:

  • XML format definitions : Korg DSS1 DD disks added.
  • XML format definitions : Emax II disks added.
  • Command line tool : USB loader -> Raw loader added.
  • Amstrad DSK file added to the batch converter export list.
  • New Writer : Thomson *.FD writer.
  • Thomson *.FD loader fixed : Side 1 ID corrected to 0.
  • D88 Writer fixed : Cylinder and Side ID correctly set.
  • ImageDisk (*.IMD) export : Deleted data mark and data CRC error flags supported.
  • FAT12/16 Disk browser : Entries First cluster readback corrected. (With high word uninitialized).
  • IMG loader : More disk sizes support added.
  • DosDiskBrowser : 1.743MB & 1.764MB added.
  • 64bits systems : Batch converter and Dos Disk browser issues fixed.
  • MacOS X & Linux version : file export -> Auto-append the file extension.

USB Stick STM32 (Gotek) HxC Floppy Emulator: Firmware v3.0.8.2a

June 6th, 2016 No comments

Jean-François DEL NERO (who’s behind the HxC SD Floppy Emulator) recently has released a version of the HxC emulator firmware that is compatible with the STM32 chip used in the Gotek floppy emulators.

This means that the great functionality of the HxC SD emulator is now available on cheaper and more widely available hardware.

The bootloader to convert the Gotek floppy drive in HxC compatible must be purchased on the website HXC 2001 by sending an email to Jean-François DEL NERO. The price of the bootloader is one-off 10 Euro per Gotek that you want to update. Future updates of the software are free and can be made from a USB stick

The HXC Usb (Gotek) firmware supports:

Release notes Firmware USB HxCFloppyEmulator v3.0.8.2a

  • HD floppy disk format issue corrected : write buffer size corrected.
