Attention! New R3 version DOES NOT INCLUDE EXTERNAL DRIVE CONNECTOR
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.
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.
Attention: In machines with internal disk drives some disk images can refuse to load due incompatible drive enumeration. You might need to disable the internal drive/controller so the EmuFDC is seen as unit 0
