Well I will take a look. The direct access code exists, it just needs wrapping as an AmigaOS *.device file.

Then I don't know what the modern best way of doing fat32 access is: perhaps http://aminet.net/package/disk/misc/fat95 ?
This existing filesystem code would run on top of hxcda.device (or whatever name we pick).

How hard can it be? I'm thinking not very.

@Akira: You can insert everything into an ADF using adfview. It's windows software that let You get into the ADF like into directory in windows. I use it, and it works pretty well. You can copy from and copy into ADF file exactly the same way as You do it with directory.

Hmmm, I tried ADF Opus and it wasn't working. I'll try that one, thanks.

On an A600, just use a PCMCIA-CF or PCMCIA-SD adapter.

Sorry, maybe You're right and I'm exaggerating with number of nonconstructive posts, but I'm so excited with this Flash Floppy firmware, and I can't stop myself from writing:-) Sorry again, and I promise to improve my behavior:-)
And about Mq666: I'm using Mq initials everywhere in internet, but on eab we can't use so short nickname, so I add 666, because 6 key is in the middle on my keyboard, and I like touch this key:-) And again: I promise this are the last nonsense words I wrote here:-)

@kipper2k: Ok, so it's misunderstanding:-) It seemed to me that I did not write so much:-) I did not notice the post number. So we can still be friends kipper2k:-)
Sorry for mistakes, but I'm not native speaker in english, I don't know english very good, so I try to read, write and understand as good as I can.

@DH: I registered my account here not so long ago, and when I tried to register as "Mq", I saw message that username must be longer. Maybe some time ago it was possible to have shorter username.

That restriction must apply only at registration time. DH's original username was much longer than that.

You could PM RCK, the EAB Administrator, to ask for your username to be shortened, but that might have implications for any EAB File Server account you have.

This is the best reason to chose a number I have ever read anywhere. Haha!

It's always been 3 characters or more for registration nicks, it's a default of vB.

If I recall correctly, the change was applied because I was a Moderator/Global Moderator and RCK honoured the change. I really don't think RCK is going to change that for regular members. It was done because nobody, and I mean nobody, could be arsed to write out "DemonHellraiser" including RCK

Anyway, enough of this small talk about user names etc, let's get back to the topic

I just found out how easy it is to add the sound mod with the flash floppy FW installed, very nice, no soldering, gotta love it, and the volume for me is just right

@Akira

Any chance to update the 1st post with some current info -
I know it's a PITA but this is a 30+ page thread and I suspect many people will miss a lot of the good info

eg.

For the HxC FW, just have look at the right place.
All is there :

http://torlus.com/floppy/forum/viewt...hp?f=33&t=1683

And all infos and related files are also also into this archive :

http://hxc2001.com/download/floppy_d...a_firmware.zip

Unfortunately third-parties documentations will never be up-to-date since i am updating the firmware quite often.
