Re: [MAME] Mounting disk images?

in PC Emulation
AFAIK, MAME only shows devices that can be actually connected. I guess your system hard disk controller only allows one HDD connected to it, so you'll need to attach another controller to your buses. What MAME system are you trying to use? (BTW, you can test configurations using Scroll Lock to …

Re: Retro flight sim playthroughs

in Milliways
I wonder how many flight simulators had a proper "high resolution" (=640*350) EGA version... also, I wonder if any VGA flight simulator chose 640*480@16 colours instead of 320*200@256 colours.

Re: USB Floppy

I also have the same NEC UF0002 (same part number and code). It reads fine 720Kb floppies, although I haven't tried to write them. I wonder why nobody made a USB to floppy converter... all USB floppies I've found have the USB part embedded into the floppy board.

Re: USB Floppy

Keep on mind that floppy drives were slow, and although some USB disk drives offer some kind of "acceleration" you won't get anything remotely near "pendrive speed". I guess the differences between brands are durability and the ability to read/write 720k disks. On the other side, the worst part is …
