I'm coming to the conclusion that I'll actually need two FZs to solve the workflow issue I outlined above, one with a working floppy drive to convert old sample diskettes to .fzf files, and one with the HxC emulator as my actual music making device.

The thing I really love about my Virostek upgraded DSS-1 is that it takes SD cards and 3.5 floppy disks - so it's the best of both worlds in that sense.
To backup your floppies you can :

- Connect both HxC and Floppy drive on the FZ1 and activate one drive or the other with a switch on the floppy ribbon.

or

- Connect the FZ1 drive on a PC and read the disk with the HxC software

or

- Use a floppy dump board on a PC with any floppy drive

or

- Send me the disk. i will make the images for you.
