Ensoniq EPS OS disk image

Hey everyone. I need a little help.

I recently purchased a usb floppy emulator for my Ensoniq EPS. I thought I had found a disk image of the OS, but it turns out it was a disk image in a format for a translator program. I have a floppy with the disk image, but I don't have a usb floppy drive with me at the moment to copy the disk image.

Do any of you out there in synth land have an EPS OS disk image that I can use with my floppy emulator? At this point I don't even care if it's the latest version. I just want to test it out and see how it works!

Thanks for your help!

I think I've found the problem: EPS format is 800kb. This drive is 720kb. c**p.

I've got an .EDE of OS 2.49, and it seems to read from the drive, but it says "Bad disk/not eps format".

Perhaps this drive won't work. :( Anyone else have any suggestions or advice?

are you using the hxc floppy emulator?

i have the image in hxc format.

cannot comment on those generic usb thumb key drives though.

No HXC. Don't have the cash for one right now. Will definitely give it a go in the future.
