FloppyEmu Question

Anyone familiar with the boot process for the FE? I am using the card that came with the system but also tried to copy everything to a 32 GB FAT32 card. I have no issue booting a 3.5" or a 5.25" image, but when I set it to SmartPort mode and turn the machine back on, nothing happens. I looked inside the SMART0.po image, seems to have ProDOS and a bunch of other utilities. Clearly I must be missing a step, any ideas?

 

Thanks for any help.

What computer are you trying

What computer are you trying to boot on, how do you have it connected, and what does the FE display show when it powers on?

Never mind, just remembered

Never mind, just remembered this is a no-go without a Liron or possibly the new Yellowstone card if/when it releases.

Floppy EMU on an Apple //c and a Mac

The FE works fine as a SmartDrive on my Apple //c and, with changed firmware, works as an HD20 (up to 32 MB) on my Mac SE/30.
