How to work from CF card from QL in Q-emuLator?

How to work from CF from QL in Q-emuLator?

How do I open a compact flash card in Q-emuLator?
I would like to join and edit my CF card I use on my QL in QUBIDE.
I would like to join it as a WIN drive.
Is this somehow done?


I do not use an emulator, just a real QL, excuse my English, I use google translator :-)

No. I don't see any obvious way to do this (other than copying the complete CF contents to a win drive/native file system).

my mistake, I asked if there was any help? :-)
So you can help me somehow?
How do i have to proceed ?
I can use a CF cart or I can copy my data to an SD card.
I have both QUBIDE and QL-SD, each device in another QL.

What is it - win drive / native file system?
My English is very weak, I'm sorry.

QEmulator (registered version only) can open QXL hard drive image files, as used by the QL-SD drive (the new version)
You have the older QL-SD drive, so if you have not updated the driver to the Marcel's latest version, you are still using the QL_BDI.win file which cannot be opened by QEmulator (but can be opened by QXL reader)
So probably you have to:
1. copy all data from CF to SD card
2. open the SD card QL_BDI_win in QXL reader - ad also open a blank QXL.win image
3. Copy everything from the SD card to the QXL.WIN image using QXL reader
4. Open the QXL.win image file in QEmulator registered version !

I think that you'd better update your QL-SD driver to Marcel's latest version, so that it will use the QXL.win ...

Hi,

QEMulator can have the QL-SD extensions installed so the the emulator can read QL_BDI files.

The extension files are in the QL-SD Starter Pavk, abailable on QL Homepage.

I thought the new QL- SD driver worked on the older version of QL-SD.

I will get my real QLs out and try this out.


Regards,

Derek

Could you please specify the address from which it is possible to download?
Thank you.

The QL Hompage in the QL-SD section.

http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/qlsd/index.html

Lookst the QL-SD Starter Pack zip file, there is a file included on the zip file called: extensions.zip

Which has the required files to extend QEMulator to use QL_BDI files.

The instfuction file is in German, I have translated it to English if required.


Regards,

Derek
