Manual - Floppy to USB 1.44 Mb emulator ( 34 Pin Interface )- Format Version


Note : Prior to the use of this version of floppy to usb emulator, few noticeable things should be kept in mind. When the usb flash drive is not plugged in the usb port of usb as floppy, the front display of floppy drive to usb will display "0.0." ( please notice the 2 dots in between the Zero's). These dots play very important role in this version of floppy drive to usb emulator. These dots should disappear when you plug-in the usb disk in the port of floppy disc to usb converter. Without the usb plugged in the usb, floppy disc to usb should show these dots. If after plugging in the usb disk these dots do not disappear, means that the usb disk you are using is not compatible with  this version of floppy to usb converter. As this version of floppy to usb treats the usb single floppy disk and processes the data sector by sector and track by track, these floppy drive emulators perform data access at same speed of floppy drives. The recommended flash drives are those which are USB 1.0 backward compatible like Kingston, HP. We suggest not to use Sandisc / Transcend make usb disks. Another important thing to keep in mind before we start with these floppy drive to emulators is that the usb disk should be formatted in 1.44 mb format size using the floppy disc to usb software ( either in single  block of in multi-block version ). If we do not format the usb disk , it will not be read in floppy to usb emulator. On the front of this floppy disk to usb converter it has two switches. These switches perform task of changing the virtual discs when usb is plugged in. Also recommended is to change the block number to 00 while unplugging the flash disk.
