Thanks for appreciating our forum.
Format as FAT32
thank you a lot or this great tutorial. I found out a way to make it work on my own before, but for me I have to choose 'floppy' to make it work with HomePort, otherwise it finds the virtual drive, but doesn't find the .img files on it, even if it is marked 'removable'.
How did you format the virtual drive? FAT32 or NTFS or does it make no difference?
I now have a 12GB virtual floppy drive filled up with 15 BlueChart G2 files, all recognized by HomePort and working fine!
Btw big thanks to Catymag for his/her excellent work in this forum!!!
Hello everyone, the virtual disk works very well but when I restart the pc, virtual devices disappear .....
Thank you very much. It worked for me. I can open street map (_.img).
But I can't open file " gmapbmap.img " of the " worldwide aviation basemap v.2 " ( I've downloaded from this site )
Can you suggest me ?
To open a basemap on pc use Trip and Waipoint Manager, subsitute the one in the program folder, renaming it in the same way. (backup the old one or rename not to loose it). Open TWM in Mapsource to see it.
This thread ought to be a "STICKY" as it is a really....really good guide.
Thanks a lot for this.
