Gumdoc Posted September 25, 2021 Share Posted September 25, 2021 Hi All, So I was able to find a complete //GS with everything I wanted, my only question is about the hard drives. I never owned a hard drive during the time I owned a //e and //gs, so apologies if these questions are basic. I own a Floppy Emu that I use with my //e that works great. It has been recommended that I consider either a CFFA3000 or the MicroDrive options, both from ReActiveMicro. I went through the manuals for both cards but think I'm more confused than I was before, lol. A few questions: 1. Besides what I assume is a faster boot and hard drive partitions, what do these card give me that I don't have with a FE boot setup? 2. What is the main difference between the cards and would one be a better choice considering I already have the FE? 3. Lastly, how (if any) are the hard drive images different than the .dsk/.woz/.do images I have? For example, many of the games I have are between 4-8 sides, when it comes time to change disks, I go into the FE and choose the requested disk and select it. If the images were on a hard drive, would the system know that the next disk is on the drive and just select it? Or, is there some different format that I would use as a hard-drive ready file that eliminates that, using Ciderpress or similar? Sorry for all the questions ?
