Quote from: Lawrence on August 27, 2009, 09:23:51 PMThat's the key, isn't it? I'd love to use my Compact to play games on, but is it possible to convert 5.25" disks to 3.5"? Will they run, do they need to be modified? Is it enough that they're both 1.2MB media? Since the X68000 requires a driver to access the 3.5" drive, I'm guessing they're not directly compatible.
Quote from: Magic Knight on August 27, 2009, 10:26:28 PMWell, on my setup I have a hard disk and CD drive, so I can copy games from Windows to my X68000 no problem. BUT, they don't work - they work fine on a Windows emulator, but on the real thing, you get the usual "Insert program disk please" message. So, you can't just copy from 5.25" to 5.25", presumably it's the same for 3.5" disks.
QuoteI've never tried to copy an original disc, but I tried a few .xfd images and they always worked on my real machines (5.25 and 3.5").
