Hi, thx for the update. Is there any change in the config needed? I have updated to this version but the .dsk files stored on the SD are not visible in the HxC Menu.

2 things for the direct DSK/EDSK support :

-This is for the USB Gotek emulator (why are you talking about SD ?)
-The firmware is into the Next_WIP_Alpha_Firmware_And_Tools folder in the archive :

http://hxc2001.com/download/floppy_drive_emulator/HXCFEUSB_HFE_beta_firmware.zip

Another point : I didn't try the file selector, but it may filter the files. Unfortunately i don't have the sources of this tool. It may need to be patched...
If you have an LCD with your gotek, just use the "normal mode" config file and directly browse/select the dsk on the emulator until i fix the file selector software.

btw older manager versions (2.5) should to the trick :

HxC Manager from NoRecess doesn't see any dsk files....

I tried to find a solution by myself.

So, I make a try with hxcManager 2.5 from Jeff to put dsk files into slot x.
But... but... but... i can't access any copied files...
What's the problem ?

Ast,

I suspect the HxC needs .HFE files not .DSK files. I know the change log say its can handle .EDSK and .DSK, but .HFE are supported. Perhaps it is better to get some sort of converter software.

@Jeff_HxC2001

Thanks for this Firmware update and Fix !  8)

Just tried a couple of disk files ( not protected disks ) and everything worked ok.

I loaded up " Kung Fu Master " and used the multiface two to save level two to disk, the save file loaded up ok and played, so I'd say write support is working.  ;)

Hopefully HxC Floppy Emulator Manager V3.1 will work with the Firmware later.

Thanks again.  :)
