Disk Emulator + Floppy Disk Controller for MSX Computers.
A customer has kindly made a video of the cartridge working:
This product ships flashed with FlashFloppy firmware by Keir Fraser:
The Emu-FDC integrates a floppy dIsk controller and a disk emulator into a single cartridge. The emulator can read floppy disk images from a SD card and mount them so the system can access them as real floppy disks. It also allows to plug real PC floppy drives through a regular floppy ribbon cable. No modifications to the drives needed.
It can be used in three different configurations:
- Emulated drive (A:) only, working with images from the SD
- Emulated drive (A:) and external drive (B:)
- Emulated drive disabled. Two external drives (A: and B:)
The Emu-FDC is compatible with MSXDOS (MSXDOS requires at least 64k ram to run) and contains Disk BASIC v1.1 in ROM. It works in MSX/MSX2/MSX2+/Turbo-R machines.
