    I've seen the generic versions of these. Just never saw one from Okuma or heard of anyone installing a generic version into there Okuma successfully.

    Any success with the emulator?

    We have an osp7000 that the floppy drive just stopped working. Okuma wants almost as much to replace 3.5 drive as they do to upgrade to usb drive. We have 4 Okuma mills and 2 Okuma lathes. That can get really pricey!

    Our MA400H recently had its flood damaged floppy replaced with the Okuma USB floppy emulator.
    It works fine.
    The system is set up to emulate 100 floppy drives.

    The supplied USB memory was a Buffalo branded unit (they recommend only a handful of compatible makers) and is not a particularly satisfying thing to use.

    It is actually a microSD card USB adaptor.

    The fit is so tight into all the ports I've tried it in, that when you use the cord to remove it, the plastic housing comes off.
    It is so small that you can't grip it with your fingers, so the cord is necessary!
    Then while trying to pick it out with fingernails the SD card flies out.
    After finding some needle nose pliers, I did get it out, and had to do the same thing again each time I needed to remove it.

    Did you purchase the emulator from ebay? If so how do you set the jumpers on the drive and are there any parameters (OSP 7000) that need to be changed?

    We got one from amazon that had the same problem in both our Okuma mill and lathe. Ordered another one off ebay that worked. Then we tried to go cheaper and by the one that looked like the one that worked, and it turned out to be a different model.

    Seems like the ones w/ a 3 digit display never work, but the one with 2 digit worked. The one we tried to order from amazon showed 2 digits, but we received the newer 3 digit one--didn't work.


    The one that worked, search for ebay #300723408804

    Hey

    Does anyone know if this emulator in the quote is just "plug & play" exchangable for the standard floppy drive? Do I need to change any settings in the cnc or at the emulator itself?

    Thanks

    Re: Okuma floppy to usb conversion

    if control unit is OSP7000 , you must use 4 jumpers on MO,S1,JA and JB
    if unit is U100, 2 jumpers on MO and JA
