Yes, the HxC is a really good device with many features. Maybe it's possible to implement some special features (like the hdd feature) also for the Enterprise :)

Outrageous that is not yet Enterprise :)

Firstly I tested 9/10/11 sectors formats, all worked fine.

Currently one problem found: write track not working, then formating track not overwrite the sectors.
It is means EPDOS Format and FAFO with Verify can't format emulated disks, because verify error.
FAFO without Verify working, I created empty RAW 990K image with the HxC software, it is a "Not a DOS disk" at begin, because not have boot sector and etc, just pure empty sectors. Finally successfully formated with FAFO when Verify is off.

The EXDOS Format not check the contains of sectors while verify only the WD flags for data error then executed without error.

The HxC sw can create a special disk image with 254 tracks, 10 sectors/track (2.5M), it is can be used with EXDOS also with the original unmodified versions.

Ah, you also bought a HxC, great :)
OK, i haven't checked the write capabilities of the HxC together with the Enterprise. Maybe it's possible to create a workaround, either on the HxC-software-side or maybe directly on the Enterprise.

The possibility to create a 2,5MB-disk sounds great :) Is it possible to write directly into this image to use it as a "small" harddisk ?

Yes, in the HxC software select the "Create / Browse DOS disk". Then in the list select 3.5" 2.50MB DSDD FAT12 and press Create Disk. Now you can copy files to image by drag&drop. Finally save disk to .HFE file.

Normal sector write working, problem only when full track writed (formating). Not only on Enterprise. In the HxC forum the developer answered to this problem: "I am actually working on a new write support."

Played with disk images, found the largest possible "floppy disk": 254 tracks, 28 sectors, 2 sides: 7112K :-D
It is can be handled the today used modified EXDOS ROMs (the sector number check modified for also support ED disks under emulator), 28 sectors because the WD generate error after long wait for the sector.

I got new beta firmware from the developer.
Formating now working! Also possible reformat with different sector numbers for example format 720K disk to 800K, works as the real disks.
