Ive read the entire thread, and Googled with no direct answer...
I have flashed numerous Goteks for the Amiga....and I have all manner of USB sticks and SD cards with USB adapters working fine, except this Sandisk Cruzer Fit 8GB. I have noted others saying this particular model works OK, and these were bought from a reputable Aussie retailer.
I have cleaned it, reformatted it, tried different allocation sizes and numerous copies of SELECTOR.ADF...all to no avail. I put the USB stick in the Gotek, it flashes 000 then ---. I have tried 2 brand new sticks, both with the same issue. I have the same model in a 16Gb and it works perfectly. Of course in the PC they work perfectly.
There is general mention of some sticks not being compatible with the Gotek...does anyone have any thoughts?
