Well, I'm sorry to report that I'm not getting positive results from the 
HxC/Gotek here.  It goes through the motions in that I can create a blank 
image with the correct geometry and format it under Nitros9.  On occasion, 
I can subsequently copy a single file and do a directory listing that 
shows the file.  But, multiple file copy with DSAVE fails 100% and leaves 
the emulation image corrupted and unusable.

may be possible to work around it by coding additional delays into the 
1793 driver, but I don't have time to go there at the moment.

I'll at least let Jeff (HxC developer) know of the problem and see if he 
can suggest anything.
