A couple of problems

Hi!

Been having some problems with my HxC Floppy Emulator on my new Amiga 1200. I'm currently trouble shooting, and noticed a possible quirk... Is there supposed to be 1 pin missing on the floppy connector on the motherboard? Looks wierd, but I woludn't be suprised if it's supposed to be that way...

Problem with the Floppy Emulator is that the Kickstart screen is flickering something horribly, and when I disconnect the emulator it's a normal, has anybody experienced this before?

Also the blizzard 1220/4 that came with the machine doesn't seem to run when i pop it into the 1200. It feels kinda loose and not a snugg fit(yeah yeah, "that's what SHE said", so no need for you guys to make fun out of me ).

Distinguished members of EAB, can you shed some light on my situation

No experience with the emulator, but in my experience trapdoor cards fit very tightly. Sounds like you haven't pushed it in far enough.

Ok, but what about the "missing" pin on the floppy connector on the mobo?

Edit: Manage to push the card in properly, now to see if it really works. I hope that it does, cause I really don't want to spring for a new accelerator after I've already bought quite enough according to my woman hoho.

Newer mind, I got it all working. Some problem with the jumper on the emulator is my guess. Now I just have to wait for the amigakit delivery, then I'll be another happy camper

Cheers and beers from Sweden!

Sorry, the missing pin is normal mate.

Glad to hear you got the card working
