Are HxC Floppy emulators any good, I saw a polish website, http://lotharek.pl/product.php?pid=120
I live in The Netherlands and I also saw this
http://www.ombouwwereld.nl/eerste-generatie/commodore-amiga/...
Prices are very different, but I guess with shipping it comes down to the same thing.
Now my question is, does anybody have good experience with this device and is a 200mb harddisk image also supported next to the normal dsk images?

Hi,
I have a HxC floppy emulator from Lotharek and it works like a charm.
The price from the www.ombouwwereld.nl is redicilous they have trown the price on the double.
You can order the HxC from Lotharek on ebay and he is a professional, in work and delivery.
I have this version SD floppy Emulator
On the same site you find everything you like to know.
For MSX you have to put the disk images by pc program on a SD card and the Emulator can handle it.
But 200Mb harddisk images are not supported, because its a Floppy emulator and not a hdd.
It connects to the floppy cable inside your msx like a normal 3,5 drive would.

Hope i could be of some help,

Ok, thanks for the info Emil, I appreciate it. I am going to Poland in a few days, maybe I can order it there, saves some shipping costs Wink

I need to add as well that the HxC emulator supports DMK files as well. So even extremely compy protected disks can be imaged and loaded on this device without any problems.

I used mine for a bit with my HB-F1XDJ and it worked fine. I wish someone made an autoboot file for the MSX though, makes it much easier to use since you don't have to fiddle with the buttons on the HxC itself.
