What is max size of the .dsk image? I tried using 4096M with no results. Maybe it works only with fat12 images?

Currently it supports FAT12 only, next release adds FAT16 support.

Feel free to try it out in a recent development build.

I would try, but I need an help.
Where can I find a ready-to-use beta version?

Fixato site is off
I gave a look to github, but I'm not skilled in compiling and I didn't find what to do...

Do you think exFAT implementation is possible for MSX?

Done.
I installed 18.0608 on my WINDOWS11 PC in the customized path:
F:\NEWMSX3\_OPENMSX

I launched OpenMSX as Administrator and input
diskmanipulator create zemhdd.dsk 4096M
And a 4gb HDD .dsk image appears.

But when i try to mount the image with

set power off
ext ide
hda zemhdd.dsk

It says
Can't change hard disk image: zemhdd.dsk not found in this context

Maybe IDE is not the right extension to use?

No, it cannot find the file. Without path it searches the current folder.

Also you must use ext SunriseIDE_Nextor and diskmanipulator create zemhdd.dsk -nextor 4096M for FAT16 support.

Edit: fixed argument order.

I tried with adding the full path with no results.
I will try Grauw suggestion.

Note that openMSX expects forward slashes as directory separators in a path specification.

Hi guys.
I did this:
- downloaded from Konamiman the "Nextor-2.1.1.SunriseIDE.MasterOnly.emulators.ROM"
- i renamed it in the way OpenMSX likes it : Nextor-2.1.1.SunriseIDE.ROM (as indicate in SunriseIDE_Nextor.xml file in extensions subdir of open msx)
- I correct the script with full path name
- I correct the script using "/" instead of "\"

This is the new script (creaZEMHDD.txt)

set power off
ext SunriseIDE_Nextor
diskmanipulator create -nextor zemhdd.dsk 4096M
hda F:/NEWMSX3/_OPENMSX/zemhdd.dsk
diskmanipulator import hda1 e:/*.*

This is what openmsx says

warning: SHA1 sum for 'Sunrise IDE ROM' does not match with sum of 'F:/NEWMSX3/_OPENMSX/share/extensions/Nextor-2.1.1.SunriseIDE.ROM'.
warning: While executing creaZEMHDD.txt: Invalid size: zemhdd.dsk

I'm sincerely thinking about give up
