Floppy Emu Update: Odds and Ends

Here’s one more firmware update for the BMOW Floppy Emu disk emulator for classic Apple computers. This update resolves some minor problems and inconsistencies that were discovered in the previous version, but don’t get too excited because it’s all small stuff.


  • Fixed a bug that broke the display type setting when selecting a Macintosh Hard Disk image

Apple II

  • Back-ported the past year’s worth of updates to the Floppy Emu Model A
  • Added a new start-up screen for the LCD display on the Model A and Model B
  • Fixed more bugs that could prevent firmware updates from completing successfully when Emu is in Smartport mode
  • Implemented a buffer overflow check for non-standard WOZ disk images (max size is 9216 bytes per track)
  • ProDOS volume names are now displayed for raw disk images whenever possible, in addition to the disk image name

Download the latest Floppy Emu firmware from the project page, or buy a new Floppy Emu Model C at the BMOW Store.

    all i can say is : WOW ! for this fast update ,

    i think i catch my problem to copy bigger files from my Macs to HD20 EMU SD space
    Steve : ” It sounds like the disk I/O isn’t working quite right, maybe due to a minor hardware problem, and you’re getting occasional I/O errors. ”
    – you might be right – i think i found a contact problem on the 30 years old external disk connector on the mac back- never used before – i think i can fix this I/O hardware problem – now no problems copying files to HD20 anymore, thanks for the fast help
