Important Note:

The SD HxC Floppy Emulator is tested with a lot of different models of SD Cards, and should works properly with all SD Cards present on the market. Unfortunately there are lots of fake/bad flash medias (SD Cards/CF Cards/USB keys...) on the market. So we recommend you to care about the SD Card selection and also choose a good provider.
