its the same, standard 14pin interface

As long as you have the oled you do not use the A/K

Paula - the hxc boot files and various instructions for the Emulator II can be found here: http://users.skynet.be/emxp/HXC.htm Replacing the dead FDD with the SD card reader is a great choice... it literally holds thousands of banks.. the only drawback is the navigation of folders on the hxc, it is cumbersome but then again so would swapping out 5.25" disks every time you wanted a new bank loaded...

more info on the sound conversion process for the hxc and some handy EII bank files can be found here: https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1657619

Hi

Well. I've tried a 32 MB and a 64 MB SD card without more success.

During boot of the Emax the FuzinMonster card is accessed and with the 64 MB card the access light is on longer than with the 32 MB or the 1 and 16 GB card. But the result is the same.

That is dissappointing since I had som progress downsizing the SD card from 16 to 1 GB. But nothing furher.

It seems that the Emax only show access to the card during boot and not when trying to format the SD card or copying the HD 1.1 software to the card.

It seems that the card should be at SCSI ID 0 and with termination jumper on. No other SCSCI ID or termination off makes as much access as the ID 0 and termination on.

Is it really true that the Emax is so much different in its SCSI than the Emax II where the FuzinMonster card works flawlessly?

I know that the Emax is very picky about the compatibility of harddisk. Might that be the real problem?

Anyone who has anything to chip in are welcome.

Have those of you who have succeded installing a SD card reader in the Emax used the SCSC2SD card reader or....? And what size of SD card are you using?

Best regards

Brian

it was really , really hot here recently and whilst i had recapped my power supply my EIIIXP was sat on top of another device, with a transformer and i got some pops...i spaced them out and no more pops or since.

I suspect your Power supply needs re-capping and the EIIIXp can get hot as it has no passive cooling.


Hi there and sorry for this late answer... Yes my first suspect was the PSU. But ... I come back here with good news !!! I found the origin of the crackles & glitches: Basically it cames from all the memory chips on the motherboard(back on the left). I had to remove all one by one carefully. Every component was a bit oxydated because of age so I took a little alcool & clean each of the pin. Then I had to put it back into once again very carefully because of the fragility of the pins. And then ... Miracle !!! Everything works fine !! And what a sound  Smiley I've been amazed by the power, the stereo image and depht of each sample I made this morning. Brilliant ! Here are some pictures. Hoping it might help the EIII community on this forum:

hi i used a vishay oled display and installed it last month.

you need to remove screws, then the pins at the header as well as two further connections for anode/cathode and then it lifts away.

i got myself another pin header to solder on to the new OLED board, then on to the EMU EIIIXP Panel board as i knew it would be a cleaner job that way.  I had to snip the pins to shorter lengths. 

I also removed the inverter from the main board.

Let me know if you need any assistance


Thanks a lot for your help ! that is very helpful. Fact is I ordered another brand of OLED (Newhaven) so I would need to know if this is the same way of proceeding?

Thanks, this one used to belong to Midge Ure from ultravox and I was hoping to get sounds off the HDD, or from the floppy library.
However it seems that there are no floppies, so replacing the FDD with an HxC and removing the HDD.

Question;
Can I leave the Adaptec card in there, without a HDD, and still boot from the HxC?
Could someone supply me with the boot image file needed for the HxC SDCard please?

Paula

I agree.  About the only reason you need the original drive is if you have a custom library on floppy.
