It is a very smart device designed by Jean-François DEL NERO. It allows you to emulate any 34-pin floppy disk drive. The SDCard HxC Floppy Emulator can replace different kinds of floppy disk drives and allows you use SD Card media instead of floppy disks. This emulator is actually used with Amiga, Atari, CPC, PC computers, different keyboards and samplers, CNC machine tools, and scientific instruments.
