But it seems so that no one tested this drive.
Actually I know someone who is using the DREM in his Emulator-II HD.
He helped the engineer in making the DREM compatible with the Emulator-II/Adaptec ACB-4000 controller.
I'll ask him if he's willing to put a testimonial on this forum.

A testimonial would be highly appreciated. I'd love to finally have a "silent" EII with a working HD interface

I got it now.
This is cool in theory.

But I  think you'll have to be pretty well organized to archive and handle 20 sd cards to find the bank you're looking for.
I guess in the end it's more of a hassle than having just one sd card with all the banks on and let 30 seconds be 30 seconds  Smiley

But - it all depends on how you organize and structure your "sd-card library", I guess.

It's a waste of resources, but I might be ending up having 20 SD cards which would be nearly 1.000 banks. I bet you can get 32MB cards for free nowadays if you keep looking.

As Wolfram says, the DREM can at least behave as a normal hard disk replacement, allowing for fast access to more than 40 banks without the need for a computer connected to the DREM. So from that perspective it's a great (but expensive) solution for people owning an Emulator-II HD with a failing hard drive.

But personally I agree with Elmbeatz that it's a shame you need a computer to swap between different HD images. If the DREM would have some navigation buttons and a display (like the HxC does), it would give instant access to thousands of sound banks instead of "just" 46 sound banks.

Well a HD image contains 40 sound banks an HXC image just one.
Loading from HD takes 4 seconds, loading from floppy/HXC 30seconds.

But it seems so that no one tested this drive.

I don't really get it...

IF you have to use a computer to switch between the different HD Images (which sucks, doesn't it?...), what's the advantage of this thing to the 'normal' hxc floppy emulator?

Greetings,
Elm.

That really looks fantastic. Can anyone confirm it is working? I'm about to pull the trigger on this...

oops sorry misread that.. you can find all the EPROM binaries at the yahoo group files section.. you will need to join the group to access: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/emulatorII-list/files/Technical/EPROM%20Binaries/
