Hi

any amibayers got any experience using a hxc floppy emulator as a hard drive? Someone's cleverly done this I read, wondered if anyone's got any first hand experience of using one in this way...


or , whether using the hxc image selector / menu was all it needs?

i dug my St out the other day and feel it might need a play soon.. but I've not got an hxc at this point. Yet!

Sadly no, I heard that while you can use the HxC as a hard drive it would only be at the speed of a floppy drive. I've got an ST with a HxC mounted internally so it would be interesting to see what other people think as well. To be honest though I have been playing with the idea of getting an Ultra Satan as well.

Just get an ST(E)-IDE. It's faster and cheaper than HxC.
