And btw you can now use the direct browsing mode without using the manager since you have an OLED screen : use the "normal" cfg file or remove it completely from the stick.

Good point, but how do you change directories and select disks with only 2 buttons

By default there is an auto selection function : after 4 seconds the current displayed folder/file image is selected. This timeout value can also be changed into the setting menu.

I own an MK3 and i had the same results about writing data with AR MK3 on a old release of your FW.

Does Amigoun sent you his HFE ?
If not, i can test it again with last FW next week-end.

Yes, This was fixed a month ago. You need to use ADF files, and a decent usb stick.
HFE write latency is yet too long for the AR MK3.
save ok on MK3 with a standard adf file thanks Jeff

Major Firmware update ! :

Quote:
03 December 2017: Firmware STM32 USB HxCFloppyEmulator v3.1.0.4a

- Thomson machines : *.FD
- Sam Coupé : *.SAD, *.MGT
