Floppy Disk Emulator??

I've recently experienced some issues with bad diskettes for my MSDos PCs that has me looking into FDD emulators.
I am looking for prebuilt units.

The HxC seems to be the Cadillac version and can replace (2) drives and supports both 3.5 and 5.25 drives.
Some are from Lotharek and others from DM Systems.
I've seen cheap FDD emulators from GoTek that only support 1.44m FDDs.

Does anyone have any experience with any of these devices?
Is the extra cost of the HxC devices vs Gotek worth it (if I can live with only 1.44m support)?


  • It depends. What era of software do you use? Do you use 3.5 or 5.25 more often? Also watch out as some of these FDD emulators are junk.

  • I would buy it if HxC or GoteK FDD emulator supports both 5.25" and 3.5" with non-standard track.
